A young girl of six with her parents spends time at the Cataract Hotel in Aswan. There, she befriends Ali Lawi, the Nubian servant for Agha Khan. The girl now a poet, immigrated to Montreal, recalls in a superbly poetic prose the journey to Egypt, a few years before the creation of Lake Nasser as a result of the construction of the Aswan High Dam.
