Hena Khan AMINA'S SES
EXPOSITION and CONFLICT
Amina ortaokula başlayan ve pek çok değişiklik bakan bir Pakistanlı-Amerikalı, Müslüman kız. En iyi arkadaşı Soojin farklı davranıyor, ağabeyi Mustafa beladan uzak durmakta zorlanıyor ve çok muhafazakar amcası Pakistan'dan ziyarete geliyor. Amina müziği sever, güzel bir sesi vardır ve piyano çalabilir, ancak kendisi için konuşmakta zorlanır ve başkalarının önünde performans sergilemekten nefret eder.
CLIMAX / TURNING POINT
Amina's best friend Soojin is Korean-American and is excited to get her citizenship and adopt a new "western sounding" name. Amina is surprised and saddened that Soojin would want to give up her name. Soojin has also been friendly with Emily, a girl who used to partake in the teasing other kids inflicted on Amina and Soojin for their culture.
Amina's mosque is holding a Quran recitation competition that her parents want her and her brother to enter. She refuses to perform a solo in her school's concert because she is so afraid of singing in public. Her friendship with Soojin crumbles due to her jealousy of Emily, and worst of all Amina overhears her uncle telling her father that Amina shouldn't sing and play music because it is haram and she’s better off practicing her Quran.
Amina's mosque is horribly vandalized in a hate crime. The building is burned and the beautiful and sacred things inside torn and destroyed. Her family and Muslim community are devastated at the loss. Everyone rallies together including the school and interfaith community to support them and help to rebuild. It is a beautiful show of solidarity.
To lift their spirits, Amina's parents encourage her to play piano for those gathered at their house. It brings great comfort to them in their grief and she is pleased to see that even Thaya Jaan appreciates it. Amina resolves her fight with Soojin and Emily. Emily's father donates his contracting skills to help rebuild and Soojin's church holds a fundraiser for the mosque as well as the Quran recitation competition which, to everyone's surprise, Mustafa wins!
Gaining renewed confidence through the support of the community and her success at the Quran recitation competition. Amina decides to perform the solo for her school's concert. Her teacher is thrilled and Amina stuns the audience with a soulful rendition of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come".
