According to the UAE daily, Al Bayan, the series, written by Diana Fares and Samar Yazbek, tackles the younger generation recklessness and the illusions of love. Arafeh plays the role of young housewife, Nada, also a single mother, who was left behind by her equally young husband to raise their only son with very little money. Nada’s financial and social sufferings begin after her husband’s sudden departure, forcing her to go from one house to another trying to secure for herself and her child a stable lifestyle.
After years of leading a desperate life, Nada’s ex-husband re-emerges married to a rich woman, battling to gain the custody of his only child.
The talented Arafeh is also seen busy these days writing a new TV series, whose name has not yet been revealed, and is expected to commence the shooting earlier next year.

Arafeh’s talents were passed on to her from her father Suheil Arafeh. She is one of Syria’s prominent singers, who started her career singing national songs composed by her father. From there, she came into acting, playing significant roles in a number of Syrian TV series, like “Eileh Khams Njoum” (A Five Stars Family), and “Khan Al Harir” (Al Harir Inn). – Albawaba.com
