The astonishing true story of one boy's journey across the globe in search
of a safe place to live.
Raised by a tribe of nomads in Darfur, Abdul was just 7 years old when the
government began a brutal ethnic cleansing campaign against his people. The
Sudanese army killed his entire family and burned his home to the ground.
Abdul narrowly escaped with his 3-year-old brother Yusuf, and together they
fled to Chad. There they endured appalling conditions in one of the world's
most impoverished refugee camps.
Until one day Abdul was offered the chance of a better life. A chance fraught
with danger that would force him to make the most heartbreaking decision of
his life.
Abdul's death-defying journey eventually led him to the UK, where his love of
animals provided a lifeline, and he landed a job as a stable boy.
But the choice he made that day in Chad would continue to haunt him...
