The Monk of Mohka




A fast-paced, urgent and humane account of the ongoing Yemeni Civil War and one man seeking escape from its midst.

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.

A heart-pounding true story weaving a visceral portrait of ongoing war with the tale of one courageous young man determined to get home.
