Alternating voices of 4th-graders Drita and Maxie reveal their individual journeys through change, pain, discovery and friendship. An intuitive teacher gives popular, but acting-out Maxie an assignment: interview newcomer Drita about her war-torn homeland, Kosova, and journey to the United States. Despite the language barrier they find an African-American and Muslim Albanian refugee have more in common than they imagined. Compassionate and entertaining.
