Afghan orphan, Jamal (Jamal Udin Torabi) and his older cousin Enayat (Enayatullah) embark on a hazardous journey to London from their refugee camp at Peshawar, north-west Pakistan. Having travelled overland to Turkey, they then have join other refugees in a shipping container along to cross the sea to Italy and then continue overland to London.
