Mokhtar Alkhanshali grew up in San Francisco, one of seven siblings in a tiny apartment. His parents are immigrants from Yemen. He is a Muslim and he is an American. In 2015 Mokhtar was travelling through Yemen when the country was engulfed in civil war. The US Embassy closed, Saudi bombs rained down on the country, and Mokhtar was trapped. Desperate to escape, he embarked on a nail-biting adventure to get back to America. Eggers tells the true story of a courageous young man determined to get home.
