Overview

Da quando ha lasciato l'Etiopia, dopo che i soldati hanno ucciso suo padre a pochi metri da lui, la vita di Sepha è sempre stata tranquilla e prevedibile. Certo, non è riuscito a realizzare il suo sogno di aprire un ristorante, ma ha comprato una piccola drogheria in un quartiere povero di Washington e le cose non vanno così male. I clienti sono sempre gli stessi, di giorno studenti di ritorno da scuola, di notte delinquenti e prostitute. Ma un giorno le cose per lui cominciano a cambiare: in un palazzo disabitato ormai da anni compaiono Judith e Naomi, una giovane donna bianca e sua figlia. Per Sepha il loro arrivo rappresenta un nuovo inizio. La ragazzina passa con lui interi pomeriggi, leggendo I fratelli Karamazov seduta sul bancone del negozio. Tra i due non ci sono parole superflue, solo una complicità segreta e silenziosa, e la volontà di colmare quel vuoto che prende alla gola e che a volte non fa dormire. Una sera poi Judith lo invita a cena a casa e qualcosa si riaccende nel cuore di Sepha. Ma la realtà a volte è un muro contro cui i sogni si frantumano e Sepha comprende che la libertà è un diritto per cui dovrà continuare a lottare sempre, anche lontano dalle mine e dai morti del suo paese.
