She puts up the most seriously injured victim at her own home, a young man with horrendous face injuries. After four years, Dadgul is able to return to his ruined village, Katachel. Sybille accompanies him. With great energy she builds schools, wells and houses, allows girls go to school – until Dadgul, whose life she had saved, turns into her biggest enemy. He does all he can to get her out of the way. But Sybille fights for her village in Afghanistan, for her reputation, for her life…
