In a little coffee shop in one of the most dangerous places on earth, five very different women come together. Sunny, the proud proprietor, who needs an ingenious plan to keep her cafe and customers safe. Yasmina, a young pregnant women stolen from her remote village and now abandoned on Kabul's violent streets. Isabel, a determined journalist with a secret that might keep her from the biggest story of her life. Candace, a wealthy American who has left her husband for her Afghan lover. And Halajan, the sixty-year- old, whose long-hidden love affair breaks all the rules.
