About
Tiny Dancer is the miraculous story of Zubaida (pronounced Zoo BAY duh), a nine-year-old girl from a remote region of Afghanistan who suffers excruciating burns when a kerosene heater explodes. But although Zubaida is horribly mutilated, she doesn't die. When an American soldier chances to see Zubaida, he can't ignore her suffering. He takes her despite standing orders to the U.S. Medics. Assisted by a large coalition of benefactors, Zubaida is flown to Los Angeles where she begins a series of surgeries by Dr. Peter Grossman, who (with his wife Rebecca) eventually takes the child into his own home. This is a heartfelt and inspiring story of incredible courage equally matched by incredible kindness.
