The chorus of dawn descends the burned mountain, echoing in the shale walls of a Portuguese village. Ruby awakens and stands in the half-light. Outside, her dog, Frankie, has run away. Daughter of two worlds, the one that her English parents left behind and the Portuguese land of her upbringing that still calls her a foreigner. She moves between the borders of both without belonging to either. Her best friend, Millie, will be returning to England; the end of their childhood meets the end of a warm summer day.
