Fifteen-year-old Elias and his family are caught in the middle of an international conflict - the deadly crossfire between the Syrian Army and government-opposed Rebels. Dangers mount, conditions worsen, and after witnessing the tragedy of war and the indignities of a refugee camp, Elias finds himself a newcomer in North America where he comes face to face with completely new battles - culture shock, racism, and bullying.
