She heads to the Middle East with a mission to improve opportunities for women. Instead she encounters misogyny and persecution, before becoming embroiled in a horrific miscarriage of justice.

In their quest, they meet with political intrigue, a passionate romance and the horrific consequences of religious extremism.
