A novel told from the point of view of Mina Simpson, a Lebanese doctor and a queer trans woman, who has journeyed to the Moria refugee camp on Lesbos, Greece to help refugees encamped there. Alameddine weaves together the stories of one refugee family and the story of Mina’s coming of age in a violent and repressive culture, drawing connections between being displaced from home and country and displaced from one's family and body – both physically and existentially.
