Summary
In 1948, as violence erupts in Jerusalem, a young Arab woman, Hind Husseini, finds fifty-five abandoned children and faces the biggest challenge of her life--changing their destiny. She dedicates her life to providing the children with love and education, and establishes the Dar El-Tifel orphange. Years later, Miral arrives at the school after her mother commits suicide. Hind sees that Miral has the potential to change the world peacefully--but Miral is appalled by the injustice that surrounds her and flirts with the notion of armed resistance. Hind desperately races to save Miral from this legacy of destruction. But is she too late?
