Tara is an ordinary teenager. Although her country, Kurdistan, is caught up in a war, the fighting seems far away.

It hasn't really touched her. Until now. The secret police are closing in.

Tara and her family must flee to the mountains with only the few things they can carry. It is a hard and dangerous journey - but their struggles have only just begun. Will anywhere feel like home again?
