Rasheed is home during the day, because he got fired from working at two local restaurants. Laila harasses Rasheed about why he got fired, and Rasheed beats her, saying she would make him kill her.Laila has no choice but to question him because food is running out, and the family is forced to skip meals often. Rasheed steals food when he can, but the family begins to realize that they might starve.
