The story follows Hany Abdallah Peter, a 14 year old boy, who was locked in a bubble. Hany’s life changes drastically due to unfortunate circumstances. Hany’s mother is forced to transfer her son to a public school, leaving behind his private elite language school, forcing him to experience a cultural shock. Things get worse for Hany as he has to surrender to the assumptions of his classmates and teachers who don't read his full name and mistake him for a Muslim - not a Christian as he really is. A thought provoking drama and a comedy of errors, raising many questions.
