Just before World War II, Anya Rosen and her family leave their home in Odessa for Shanghai, believing it will be a safe haven. At first, Anya's life in Shanghai is privileged and relatively carefree: She has crushes on boys, fights with her mother, and longs to defy expectations just like her hero Amelia Earhart. Then Anya finds a baby - a newborn abandoned on the street. Amelia Earhart goes missing. And it becomes clear that no place is safe - not for Jewish families like the Rosens, not for Shanghai's poor, not for adventurous women pilots.
