Script Details

*** Please submit custom audition. 
Hani (pron: Harnee): My name is Hani. I grew up in a small farming village in the west of Somalia in a place my ancestors lived for 100’s of years. With my husband Samaan and baby boy Maaxi, we worked the land, raised our goals and tried to stay out of other people’s troubles. I thought we would live there forever as a family but one day it all changed, a day I will never forget.

Villager: (frightened screams) Run, run the rebels are coming, run and save yourselves, they are going to kill us all!

Aunty: Hani, we can’t stay here, it’s not safe. We need to walk to the camp and try and find more of our people, we should cross the border to Kenya it’s the best hope we have to survive, think of Maaxi he is too young to be out here so long.

Aunty: NO HANI! I know you are thirsty but it can kill you don’t drink it, we will find something soon my dear.

Neighbour: Hani please take Jamila with you I cannot go on, and I cannot look after her, please help her get to safety she is my only child I want her to live, please help her.

Village Woman #2: A water hole! Finally a good one too.

Tusmo: Hello my name is Tusmo, I see you are new here and on your own, are you ok?

Tusmo: We can have some other women take you to the doctor safely come, you might need to stay in the camp for women it is hard living here without your husband, is he dead?
