The tale of a unique dream and the family that helped make it come true.
Throughout the Muslim world, people fast during the month of Ramadan. All month a drummer walks each neighborhood in the quiet pre-dawn, waking its residents to partake in a blessed meal before the day's fast begins. This drummer is called a musaharati.
Najma lives in Turkey and dreams of becoming the musaharati for her neighborhood - but a woman has never held the position. With colourful courage and support from her Baba, Najma's dream comes true...but will her neighborhood celebrate as much as she does?
