Seventeen year old Miriam flees Canada for Israel when her Israeli dad says he needs more room in their house — for his new girlfriend. Soon at university, living in a dorm with three bickering roommates, she falls in love with Guy, a former combat solider who dreams of peace. But then, Miriam is caught off guard when her visa and passport application are rejected on the grounds that she’s suspected of being a Syrian Christian. In rapid order, the university boots her out and her one true friend is murdered in a brawl, but most terrifying of all, Miriam is accused of murder by Israeli police. Now, despite troubling new revelations about her father’s past, Miriam must somehow reconcile with him if she is to prove her innocence, reclaim her life, and hang on to her newfound love.
