Ten-year-old Zemene is a spirited child afflicted with a severe curvature of the spine. Her chance encounter with Dr. Rick Hodes, an observant Jew dedicated to the medical care and emotional well-being of Ethiopian children at risk changes her life. As he embarks on a journey to save Zemene’s life and aid other families, the doctor’s work in bridging cultural gaps and instilling the value of education also comes to light.
