Walk in the shoes of Alem and you will learn what it's like to be a boy without a country. Alem's father is Ethiopian and his mother Eritrean, and as long as these two countries are at war, Alem's family is not welcome in either place. So Alem's father does what at first seems unthinkable - he leaves Alem in England, alone, in the hope that he will find safety as a refugee. Though the Refugee Council in London takes Alem's case, through the legal processing, finding a foster family, and entering school, it is Alem's courageous and caring character that wins him the friends, the respect, and ultimately, the legal permission to stay in England and start his own, new life.
