"It has been a month since eleven-year-old Malaak's beloved father left Gaza City to look for work in Israel, only to disappear. Every day she climbs up to the roof and waits for him, imagining that she can fly to the prison cell where she is sure he waits. She spends her days in near silence, preferring to communicate with the dove she has tamed. Malaak's brother, Hamid, has his own way of coping. Filled with anger, he becomes involved with extremists who preach violence as the only way to change their fate. To save her brother and herself, Malaak must find the courage to move beyond the strife that surrounds her."
