When forced to separate, 12-year-old Alì and his older brother Mohammed (17), have been travelling already for a very long time. Three years earlier a bomb destroyed their house in Kabul and killed their parents, leaving them no option but to flee, all alone suddenly and without anything to lose anymore. From Turkey, the closest gate to Europe, Mohammed decides to use a dinghy to sail across to Greece, where he hopes to make enough money for Alì to join him. In the few hours preceding his departure, Mohammed tries and teach his brother what he'll need to survive, but when one morning Alì wakes up and Mohammed isn't there....
