Meriam's Mother: You kissed him. In the desert. Meriam: No, no I didn't! Meriam's Mother: At the Tree of Life, you kissed him. The secret police saw your lips on his. Meriam: The secret police? You had me followed! Meriam's Mother: I don't need to have you followed, Meriam. Everyone knows who you ARE! Everyone but me. I trusted you! I should never have let you go to that mall, to those American movies...kissing in public! What do you do when no-one else can see?
