Zenobia was once a great warrior queen of Syria whose reign reached from Egypt to Turkey. When things feel overwhelming for Amina, her mother reminds her to think of Zenobia and be strong. Amina is a Syrian girl caught up in a war that reaches her village. To escape the war she boards a small boat crammed with other refugees. The boat is rickety and the turbulent seas send Amina overboard. In the dark water Amina remembers playing hide and seek with her mother and the journey she had to undertake with her uncle to escape. And she thinks of the brave warrior Zenobia.
