Dalya is a young Syrian teen living as a refugee in America. As a Muslim from a foreign land, she has plenty to cope with - from adjusting to a new country, her parents' separation to figuring out her own cultural identity. Owing to Trump's ban on Muslims traveling to the US, she no longer gets to see her father - her only link to the motherland. Can she survive the otherness meted out to her?
