Jamal loves playing football, which isn't easy if your goalie only has one leg and you keep having to dodge landmines to get your ball back. When it is discovered that Jamal's mother has been secretly running a school, the family must leave their home and begin a long and dangerous journey to Australia.

The children survive separation from their parents, hunger and violent smugglers, only to find that Australia is not as welcoming as they had thought.
