A third year of drought blankets Kabul during the summer of 2000. Across the city, black market  copies of Titanic have taken the people by storm and Laila, Mariam, Aziza, and Zalmai join in,  secretly watching a recording of the film with the curtains drawn and the lights off. Vendors have  flooded the desiccate riverbed and set up "Titanic City," where various knock-off items based on the  film are sold. Also during this summer, a store neighboring Rasheed's shoe store catches fire,  burning down his store as well. After the fire, the family begins selling off whatever they can. Rasheed gets fired from two restaurant  jobs and Laila baits him, suggesting his poor work ethic and bad temper are the cause for his  unemployment. Rasheed attacks Laila and when Mariam defends her, he attacks Mariam, too.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
