Fall brings more changes to the yellow house as Joe and Brita open their home to a new relative. Rashid’s mother, Mona, lost her husband in the Syrian civil war, but her dreams for their son keep her going. She arrives in America with not much more than hope. As for creating her own new life? Well, that is not something Mona wants to look at just yet. But this beautiful, sad woman does not go unnoticed!

The Yellow House Stories follow daily life on Summer Street, an American neighborhood where cultures meet, challenges emerge, and people learn how to live together.
