Zara Hossain feels like she is climbing a mountain. As the only Muslim girl in school, she faces discrimination. Tyler and friends, in particular, seem to enjoy degrading her identity right to the very core. It starts off with hurtful comments. When she reports this, the abuse escalates to vandalizing her property. Then they take it further. Tyler approaches her home, and when the teenage girl's father attempts to intervene, he is injured. The hate keeps intensifying, rapidly growing flames of hurt that threaten to engulf not only her but her entire family.
