A father sets out to save the Islamic world. A daughter sets out to save herself.

Najwa's father left when she was four years old. Now, upon her mother's death, she cannot live alone in the Islamic society of Jordan. She must find her father.

Her search takes her through new dangers as she becomes swept up with a mysterious organization which sends her into the mountains of Afghanistan.

For her father, this same journey was made as a wrenching sacrifice for the sake of his beliefs. Yet his experience in the desert transformed his life forever.

Now it transforms Najwa's, as she is compelled to follow in his footsteps: from a heartbreaking secret in Afghanistan all the way to a revelation in Britain.
