A little girl hears that her grandma’s friend, Mrs. Lee, was pushed on her way to the Asian market. When she learns that Asian students at her brother’s school are afraid to walk to class, she realizes something very wrong is happening to her community. With her mom’s support and the help of friends, she does something kind for Mrs. Lee.

A little girl sees her mother’s fear when war comes to their home. Fear is replaced with hope when they board a huge, shiny airplane. When it lands, they are somewhere new, and slowly, it comes to feel like home.
