Leaving a lonely existence on the mythical island of Penglai, young immortal Amira enters the mortal world and struggles to understand and trust others. Are they befriending her because they need her help, or because of her beauty, or do they truly care for her? Can she trust and love a young mortal man, or is he deceiving her? Caught in a battle between well-organized bandits and the residents of a peaceful valley, she ultimately must decide if she's willing to risk her own destruction to save those who've befriended her.
