In a desert country in faraway Africa, a young girl is paying the price of poverty in her family. Aisha is the first child of her parents who, unfortunately, is under duress by her uncle to marry a man over forty years older than her, and is already married with two wives. Their poverty is heightening by the drought that visited her country, pitched a tent there, and rid the landowners of their livelihood. Marriage is the only way her family can survive. She weighs her options and decides to marry, but with a hidden agenda which could affect her younger sister and family in the end. She flees from her husband, and falls into the path of kidnappers, and smugglers’ who sells girls and babies for money. She must escape from her captors to a neighboring country, and find a way to repay her bride price, or her younger sister would have to replace her in her husband’s house.
