For the anointed, death is not a threat. It's a promise. In the complexly ethereal and dangerous place that is Israel, boys and girls are afflicted by poverty, power and politics. Life is difficult for many and there are no easy answers. It is within such struggle that hope emerges. When thirteen-year-old Zanna migrates to the Middle East, she sees it not for its exotic beauty, religious diversity and archaeological splendour, but as a formidable life sentence. And she couldn't be more correct. She too has become one of the anointed; a gifting that could cost her that which she treasures most. Life.
