To make matters even more complicated, Sara, a young refugee girl who has lost both family and home, unexpectedly becomes a part of her life, as they embark together on a journey in the pursuit of true happiness.
In a series of unfortunate events, they will suffer loss, hate and humiliation, as they try to draw the strength from within themselves to prevail. Will they manage to find the peace they both deserve, or are their destinies preordained?
