In 2012, Mohammad fled his Syrian village along with his wife and four sons. Four years later he sat across from Shawn Smucher in a small conference room in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Though neither of them knew it, Mohammad had arrived in Shawn's life just in time.

This is the story of a friendship. It is the story of a middle-aged writer struggling to make a living and a Syrian refugee struggling to create a life for his family in a strange and sometimes hostile land. It's the story of two fathers hoping for the best, two hearts seeking compassion, two lives changed forever. It's the story of our moment in history - and the opportunities it gives us to show love and hospitality to the sojourner in our midst.
