When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, her father sends Nasrine and her brother to the UK.

When 9/11 hits, both siblings feel vulnerable without their parents, and then tragedy strikes. Nasrine must discover an incredible courage within herself to deal with the consequences of politics and find a better world.
