The year is 1999. Two single mothers who come from completely separate yet unerringly similar worlds, struggle through the curveballs that life throws at them and their children. Jamilah is a Somalian woman looking for sanctuary from child soldiers and Kenyan refugee camps, ending up in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Anne is a Minnesotan born and raised dealing with the loss of her grandmother. Through the pain of being forced out of their homes, suffering the loss of family members, and fighting to keep their children safe from racism, self-doubt, and bullies, these women and their children discover what it truly means to embrace all that life has to offer. Join these two families, along with the variety of individuals they meet, on a journey through life and death, hatred and love, winter and spring. You will be so glad you did.
