Although the main character, Abdul, is from Afghanistan, he ends up traveling with Rosalia, a Roma girl from Poland, and Cheslav, a Russian teenage boy. We learn the stories of all three including how the great grandparents of Rosalia were in the concentration camp of Marzahn and how limited the options are for orphans in Russia.

This emotional story informs and convicts those in western countries where living conditions are good and problems of the world seem so far away.
