Mahmoud's passion for his wife Fereiba, a schoolteacher,
is greater than any love she's ever known. But their happy,
middle-class worldâ€”a life of education, work, and
comfortâ€”implodes when their country is engulfed in war, and
the Taliban rises to power.
Mahmoud, a civil engineer,
becomes a target of the new fundamentalist regime and is
murdered. Forced to flee Kabul with her three children,
Fereiba has one hope to survive: she must find a way to
cross Europe and reach her sister's family in England. With
forged papers and help from kind strangers they meet along
the way, Fereiba make a dangerous crossing into Iran under
cover of darkness. Exhausted and brokenhearted but
undefeated, Fereiba manages to smuggle them as far as
Greece. But in a busy market square, their fate takes a
frightening turn when her teenage son, Saleem, becomes
separated from the rest of the family.
Faced with an
impossible choice, Fereiba pushes on with her daughter and
baby, while Saleem falls into the shadowy underground
network of undocumented Afghans who haunt the streets of
Europe's capitals. Across the continent Fereiba and Saleem
struggle to reunite, and ultimately find a place where they
can begin to reconstruct their lives.
