Taken from their home in Pakistan to work in the Persian Gulf, eight-year-old Rashid and his little brother Shari cling to each other.
Then they are separated and forced to become jockeys in the lucrative camel-racing business.
Rashid is starved and worked to exhaustion by harsh supervisors - but he has a talent for racing and quickly becomes his stable's star jockey.
Soon he begins to forget what life was like when he had a proper home.
He almost begins to forget about Shari.
