The play "Leila" it is a very powerful romantic drama about the group of Bosnian teenagers (brought to London by the United Nation's rescue mission during the Bosnian civil war between 1993-1997) who are adopting a new western life style completely opposite of their old traditional Bosnian life style.
The main character in the play is Leila, a young Bosnian girl, who met and falls in love with a Bosnian boy Husein whom she met in her classroom in London's school.
Leila and Husein planning to get married and to stay and live in England.
But Leila's father is very unsettled and unhappy with life in London and he goes behind Leila's back and applies to the Bosnian Embassy in London, for help to send him and his daughter back to Bosnia and he succeeds in his intention.
Leila's whole life is turned upside down when she finds out from her father that they're going back to Bosnia and she is in a big dilemma who she's going to do? Is she going to obey her father's wishes and goes back to Bosnia to live a miserable life, or she's going to disobey her father's wishes and get married to Husein and stay in England.
