Tala: When I was 18, I fell madly in love with a girl my first year at college in New York. She was an American. We spent three wonderful months together. I never knew I could feel so... complete. So alive. Leyla: Til now, obviously. Tala: Til now. Leyla: So, what happened? Tala: I broke it off. I ended it. Leyla: Why? Tala: I was in pieces. I told myself that it was for the best. I was away from home, I was lonely, and... Leyla: And? Tala: This is not a way to live, Leyla. It's not easy. It's not acceptable. Leyla: We didn't break any rules last night, Tala. Tala: But we did where I come from. People in Jordan do not live like this. At least not openly. Leyla: And now, you're in England. Now, you live in the west. Tala: But I don't think that in any society of cheating on one's fiancee with someone else is acceptable.
