Description

Adam is a tortured soul. Exiled from his homeland, forced to watch the horrors unfold from afar. His family, still living - or surviving - in war-torn Syria struggle daily to feed, clothe, and educate their children.



Adam tries to be a 'global citizen' and become a part of his new community in Malaysia, but is constantly faced with intolerance, bigotry, and plain old racism. Opportunities are few and Adam finds himself working long hours for poor pay so that he can help his family.



The increasingly distressing news bulletins, along with Adam's haunting childhood memories, compel him to examine his own beliefs; in God, in humanity, in himself and his integrity as a reluctant bystander in the worst human catastrophe of the twenty-first century.
