Summary (From the publisher):

Inside solitary confinement, Teza, who once electrified the people of Burma with his protest songs against the dictatorship, now applies his acute intelligence and Buddhist patience to finding meaning in the interminable days. Arrested by the Burmese secret police, cut off from his family for the first seven years of a twenty-year sentence, Teza painstakingly unrolls the newspaper filters of his rationed cheroots to seek news of the outside world.

But even in isolation Teza has a profound influence on the people around him. His very existence challenges the brutal authority of the jailers, and his steadfast spirit inspires radical change. He forms a close but cautious friendship with Little Brother, a twelve-year-old orphan who’s grown up inside the jail. Teza and the boy are prisoners of different orders—only one of them dreams of escape and only one of them will achieve it—but their extraordinary friendship frees both of them in utterly surprising ways.
