5,000 years ago in ancient Mesopotamia during a terrible drought, Jomar and Zefa's father must send his children away to the city of Ur because he can no longer feed them. At fourteen, Jomar is old enough to apprentice with Sidah, a master goldsmith for the temple of the moongod, but there is no place for Zefa in Sidah's household. Zefa, a talented but untrained musician, is forced to play her music and sing for alms on the streets of Ur.

2600 BCE.. In Mesopotamia the farmers are starving. Jomar and Zefa are sent to the city of Ur where they have a better chance of surviving - if they can keep from becoming slaves.
