Another scene that I liked was when Elias finds out Mallika's age.
Both of these were very well-written and enjoyable, and I loved them. I'm sure that these scenes will always stay with me in my memories forever.
I agree with you about the scene when Nadia decided not to go to the Adele concert alone. I felt like that was an important part in their relationship, and I couldn't have imagined enjoying myself along at a concert that I had planned going to with my child.

I agree. She acted out of character when deciding at first to go without her son.

My thoughts exactly, dancing can be very freeing.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

For me, the pivotal scenes are: For Elias, realizing that he chased a dream and leaving Malika at the concert. For Yaser, going back home. For Nadia, deciding to forego the concert. All were difficult decisions, but for me, the right ones.

I cried when Elias found out that he was in love with a child, which explained why he had never touched her and why she sounded so dreamy about her future aspirations. Worse still was the fact that poverty was what had led her to prostitution and that her parents had let her do such a degrading job despite her age. It was so sad, that when Elias gave her money, she thought she had to give her body in exchange. So heartbreaking.

For me, it was the airport scene. I was so distraught, but I knew Nadia was being the bigger person by not leaving without her son, so that made me happy.

I would say the one where Nadia is at the airport but Waleed cant travel with her so he is taken home by his uncle and Nadia stands there watching him go...
No idea is a bad idea.

My pivotal scene was when Nadia realized that she couldn't be allowed to travel with her son. She was to choose between her son and the Adele concert. She gave up the concert and went back to her son. She sacrificed everything for the sake of her son's happiness.

For me, the most pivotal scene was when we discovered Malika's age. It's heartbreaking that a young girl her age has to risky things to get money.
