Descent Into Paradise / A Place To Live (Single Voice) : Friendships confront the force of authority in these raw, powerful stories. When the new kid from Afghanistan is put in Martin's class, Martin ridicules his clothes and nicknames him "Taliban." But the two realize they have more in common than they thought and unexpectedly become friends - until a brutal drug bust at school tears them apart . . . maybe forever. Descent into Paradise confronts the hypocrisies of Western society and questions whether we aren't all just strangers in a foreign land. When a teenage boy starts making movies of his classmates kissing, some people think it's odd. But in A Place to Live, the aspiring filmmaker's project turns into a compelling protest against authoritarianism that could get him kicked out of school, and it also risks exposing his surprising feelings for his best friend. These two provocative tales reveal the consequences of standing up for yourself - and for your friends.
