Dalya’s Other Country

Dalya's Other Country

A film by Julia Meltzer

In 2012, Dalya and her mother Rudayna fled Aleppo for Los Angeles as war took over.  Months before, Rudayna learned a secret that destroyed her marriage, leaving her single at midlife.  In LA, Dalya enrolled as the only Muslim at Holy Family Catholic High School.  Can mother and daughter remake themselves while holding on to their Islamic traditions?


Dalya’s Other Country will air on POV in 2017.
