Shauzia thinks back fondly on her days in Afghanistan.  Sure life was perfect.  She and her friend Parvana worked hard to support their families.  But Parvana had gone off in search of her family and Shauzia had gone to work with the shepherds.  But now she was in the refugee camp with too many people and too little food.  She dreams of going to France and sitting in a lilac field.  The only way she can get there is if she has money.  There is no money to be had in the refugee camp so she sets off to find her fortune.  What is waiting for her outside the camp?
