    Description
    When 14 -year-old Zeena begs to be taken into care with a non-Asian family, she is clearly petrified. But of what?

    Placed in the home of experienced foster carer Cathy and her family, Zeena gradually settles into her new life, but misses her little brothers and sisters terribly. Prevented from having any contact with them by her family who insist she has brought shame and dishonour on the whole community, Zeena tries to see them at school. But when her father and uncle find out, they bundle her into a car and threaten to set fire to her if she makes anymore trouble. Zeena is too frightened to press charges against them despite being offered police protection in a safe house

    . Eventually, Cathy discovers the devastating truth from Zeena, and with devastation she believes there is little she can do to help her.
