He lived out much of his life in Italy as Joannes Leo Africanus and wrote numerous popular books. By the seventeenth century, Al-Wazzan was considered one of the most authoritative scholars on Africa.

Eitan feels a deep obligation to his parents, and through his struggle, Mouawad asks how much of a person is determined by who they set out to be and how much is determined by lineage.
