Summary

When her mum falls into a coma, a young teenager uses key objects from her mother's childhood in Kuwait to magically experience key moments from her past that help strengthen their fragile relationship.

Safiya and her mum rarely see eye to eye. But when her mum falls ill, something mysterious happens. Saff finds herself transported back in time to her mum's childhood home in Kuwait. And it becomes clear that this isn't just a magical place: it's a game. As Saff figures out how to play the game, she realises that opening her heart to the past is the key to changing her future.
