One hot summer day Luke and his friends decide to play their favorite game of war, using sticks for guns and pine cones for bombs and grenades. Sameer, who hasn't lived in their neighborhood for very long, hesitates to join in. When he tells his peers that he has been in a real war, they don't believe him. Then, as Sameer explains what happened to his family, the other children start to see their game in a new light.
