Two concurrent stories of two 11 year old children living in Sudan 25 years apart. Nya's job is to walk miles across the blazing, barren countryside twice a day to fetch muddy water to keep her family alive. Salva is one of the \"lost boys\" separated from his family by the civil war in 1985. The two meet when Salva returns to Sudan as part of the project, Water for Sudan, which aims to provide wells for small communities.
