But Khana lives in a dangerous war zone in the Middle East, where girls are not allowed to go to school. Khanas thirst for knowledge cannot be quenched.

She courageously cuts her hair so she can look like a boy and attends school just like the neighborhood boys. But Khanas plan is interrupted when her father suddenly disappears. Now, instead of going to her classes, she is forced to spend her days filtering through the local landfill looking for trash treasures to sell at the market so her family can eat. Will Khanas father ever return? Will she ultimately get the chance to discover that girls from different cultures can study and live in peace?
