When Elsa, a young French girl, witnesses the grim conditions in the refugee camp with her own two eyes, she hangs her head in shame. The refugees in their leaking tents are reduced to slipping and sliding in the mud. Before long, Elsa makes friends with a young Syrian boy called Bachir. She desperately wants to help her new friend and his family … but what, if anything, can a fourteen-year-old girl do?
