And yet, when the social studies teacher pairs them up to do an assignment, they discover they have more in common than they thought.

Then war breaks out in Yemen. Fabio's friend, Amina, the girl who once wanted to be a turtle, suddenly finds herself under the bombs, in an extreme situation. Fabio and Silvia will try to help her. But is it possible to help someone who is trapped in a war six thousand kilometres away?
