Niko and Penny are pen pals on opposite sides of the world. But their lives are separated by more than distance. Penny lives in a peaceful world with a big garden and a dog named Scruff. Niko lives in a world racked by war. His father has been arrested. And now, forced to flee their village, Niko and his mother live in a hotel that houses refuges.

In his letter to Penny, Niko describes how he stands on the balcony of the hotel at night and gazes at the moon shining in the ocean. He imagines that the reflection is a silver path leading to her home. He hopes that one day Penny can visit him. He dreams that his father will be free. He waits for the wonderful day when his family can return to their village and be happy again.
