Fifteen-year-old Kambili and her older brother Jaja lead a privileged life in Enugu, Nigeria. They're completely shielded from the troubles of the world. Although her Papa is generous and well respected, he is fanatically religious and tyrannical at home-a home that is silent and suffocating. As the country begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili and Jaja are sent to their aunt, a university professor outside the city.
