The compelling story of a girlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fight to regain her life and dreams after being forced into indentured servitude. Life is quiet and ordinary in AmalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day. Her dreams are temporarily dashed whenÃ¢â‚¬â€œas the eldest daughterÃ¢â‚¬â€œshe must stay home from school to take care of her siblings. Amal is upset, but she doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t lose hope and finds ways to continue learning. Then the unimaginable happensÃ¢â‚¬â€œafter an accidental run-in with the son of her villageÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s corrupt landlord, Amal must work as his familyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s servant to pay off her own familyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s debt.
Life at the opulent Khan estate is full of heartbreak and struggle for AmalÃ¢â‚¬â€œespecially when she inadvertently makes an enemy of a girl named Nabila. Most troubling, though, is AmalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s growing awareness of the KhansÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ nefarious dealings. When it becomes clear just how far they will go to protect their interests, Amal realizes she will have to find a way to work with others if they are ever to exact change in a cruel status quo, and if Amal is ever to achieve her dreams.
