In ihrer Heimat ist ihr Schreckliches zugestoßen, und seit zwei Jahren lebt sie in einem englischen Abschiebelager für Asylbewerber. Trotz allem ist sie ein Mensch voll Lebensfreude, Witz und Intelligenz.

Ein furchtbares gemeinsames Erlebnis hat eine tragische Verbindung zwischen ihnen geschaffen. Als Little Bee aus dem Lager entlassen wird, ruft sie bei Sarah und Andrew an.
