​A young journalist returns from the Arab Spring hungry to build a more just society at home. Yet after she fails to publish her writing and can no longer relate to her apathetic peers, despondency sets in. Insomnia - a domestic terrorist group- reverses that. By recruiting her to write their manifestos they give her the agency she craves. Soon she is embroiled in an attack against her own country. As Insomnia moves close and closer to taking action, a romance with another woman in the group and a powerful conscience, threaten her commitment to the cause. Which will win out - her passion for people or her passion for justice? True Believer is a one-woman show about identity, radicalism, and the undeniable passion of youth.
