                            of community spirit, human kindness
                            and the magic of family.

                            Twelve-year-old Fozia has survived the worst
                            flood in Pakistan’s history. But her life will
                            never be the same. With her little sister gone
                            and her parents missing, Fozia now lives with
                            Jehan’s family in a new village, hoping that
                            one day she will see her family again. But after
                            returning to her old home and coming face to
                            face with the brick-kiln owner, Fozia realises
                            there is much more at stake if she’s made to pay
                            back her family’s debt to the owner.

‘
