And against the backdrop of mounting casualties in Iraq, she searches for a way to protect them all. Her father has promised her the whole family would be reunited at their favorite restaurant. With a child's limited understanding but a warrior's heart, she sets out alone to find the restaurant and so bring her father home. In this adventure, she faces the ultimate test of her courage and her love. Written by Fredric Nardin
