Rashid does not exist in the eyes of the British Government.
He has no passport and no legal argument to stay in Britain.
His mother has gone to work abroad and he doesn't know where his father is.
Rashid has no choice but to go on the run. Rashid's journey takes him through a complex and complicated society.
A world with good people, and bad, and it is not always obvious which are which.
A society full of conflict and concerns and people trying to make sense of the lives they live.
In short, Rashid takes a journey across contemporary Britain and has some interesting conclusions to make by the end of his journey about the nature of good and bad, urban and rural, belonging and not belonging.
