Tamen longs to see the stars, but none are visible in the light-polluted sky above the fire escape of his apartment building. Even in the neighborhood park, the stars are hidden by city lights. So his mom, a nightshift nurse, finds a way to take him camping. For one magical night on the shore of a wilderness pond, the Milky Way in all its glory belongs to them.
