Rahim and Shaheen, age 11, do most everything together, except school. As Pakistan is a Muslim country, Shaheen is not allowed to go to school.. When Shaheen is saved by Yusuf, a boy from across the river (the equivalent of the wrong side of the tracks), their family honors him for his help. The result is that the village is thrown into turmoil over the "questionable character" of a person from Yusuf's village. Then a mysterious thief claiming to be Yusuf appears, and it is up to the Twins to prove to the village that a person is a person, regardless of his heritage.
