Summary

Chapter 6, "Khatwa, Khatwa" – Arabic for "Step by Step" – shares the three entrepreneurs’ stories of beginning to transform their ideas into reality and pushing through early obstacles. Yasmina hires a young and dynamic assistant, Mona, who becomes like a daughter to her. Together, the duo builds an initial client base and a collection of hilarious stories at the newly founded "Salon of Lights." Asma, with her educational books in tow, launches a community library and chases kids around her neighborhood, begging them to come listen to a story. After nervously practicing her storytelling techniques with Tamara and Maya, she officially launches the initiative – "Stories of the Sun" – from her newly decorated home trailer. After her first activity with the children, she learns just how much the experience of war has impacted their thoughts. Malak and her best friend Treza win their dream scholarship to study medical analysis at a university in Amman. Despite the importance of art in her life, Malak resolves to focus on her professional studies and to put art on the backburner. Still, she brings her art supplies with her in case she might have a bit of time to continue her first passion.
