Yasmeen's Element

Yasmeen is eager to learn. Inside the school, her hopes and ambitions expand, even as outside, opportunity begins to shrink. On this particular day, these two worlds collide. Her Professor gets pulled out of the classroom by an unknown military force, and briefly returns to give them their homework, each to give a presentation on a unique element from the periodic table. Once arriving home, Yasmeen realizes she's lost her element. A day full of adventures and obstacles unfold as she urgently tries to track down her Professor's house. Yasmeen is helped and sometimes hindered by those she encounters – a parable for what women’s education can be in an unstable place.
