With great spirit and determination, and with the help of his good friends, Bilal persuades others to collude with him in this deception, even printing false pages of the local newspaper to hide the ravages of unrest from his father.

All that Bilal wants is for his father to die in peace. But that means Bilal has a very complicated relationship with the truth...
