He must make a heartbreaking decision if he is to protect his youngest child from the Taliban. Afghanistan On a military base in Lashkar Gah, Ben lives on edge, wondering if his family will be the next to receive life-changing news from the front line. Cornwall And in a ramshackle house on the Cornish coast, Ben's mother Delphi, an artist, offers a refuge to her grandson Finn, as he retreats from the changes he senses in his family.
