Gyllen, an 18-year-old boy from London, is fleeing from his family holiday in Morocco in the camper stolen from his father-in-law. On his way, he meets William, a young Congolese boy his age who wants to go to Europe in search of his missing brother. Completely on their own, they decide to join forces. This unlikely duo made their way through Morocco, Spain and France to Calais, driven by a thirst for adventure. During their journey, friendship and trust develop between the two teenagers. But some tough decisions are going to change their lives forever.
