Experiencing Interruptions?

In The Shadow of A Patriarch

Growing up away from his native Iraq, Jalal is already under immense pressure. Added to that, the art major attending a Jordanian art school cannot pass a day without a comparison to his late father, a criticism of his carelessness, or a mention of patriarchy. From a night drive, to a visit to the shops, to a game of cards with his friends, Jalal cannot quite seem to escape the looming shadow of his father.
