A young street orphan, who makes ends meet by collecting bottles, shining shoes and selling water, runs into difficulties with older boys and other street dwelllers, and learns how to run fast - from both his friends and adversaries. He decides that he should get himself an education and that he should prepare himself for his toughest race yet across the sands to find a block of ice to chill his water.
