Juniper is a thirteen-year-old South African girl who has just moved to America and is homesick for the country she left behind. She quickly meets Matt; a drum-playing, yarmulke-wearing kid from school and the two hit it off. When Juniper's innocent sexual encounters with Matt begin to trigger certain memories from her forgotten childhood in Sudan, Juniper is forced to come head to head with the ghosts of her past.
