The interior of a parked car, with a dead battery, on a hot day. Safa has to wait and help will take a while. Heat adds to tension and frustration.

A moment of distraction and what could be a simple trip to run an errand turn into a little odyssey. Safa’s car runs out of battery and she is stranded in a parking lot in a commercial area. The day is too hot and help is not coming any time soon. (Ana Cabral Martins)
