Rahil is a 12-year-old Iraqi refugee girl living in an impoverished neighborhood of Rome, Itlay. Her guardians, Jamal and Anna, often argue and the local bullies label her stinky. Despite her hardships, Rahil dreams of traveling, as her Arabic name suggests. At her tender age, Rahil remembers traveling through the desert guarded by armed Arab men and she remembers the chaos in her native country. One day, one of Jamal's business deals ends in violence, and Rahil must flee and fend for herself. She encounters a variety of characters including her own countrymen who strangely reject her upon hearing her father's name. When her secret is revealed, she can't return home, but must continue in search of home.
