Saïd uses compassion, humor and honesty to make a case for both Palestinian and Arab points of view. She takes the audience on a tour of her life, through two wars, the horrors of 9/11, encounters with world figures including Yasser Arafat, and life with her father Edward Saïd, who was a professor at Columbia University and a worldwide spokesman for Palestine and the Middle East until his death in 2003.
