Orphaned teenager, Elijah Bwoko, has narrowly escaped capture once again. As the National Islamic Front has been scouring the countryside, his sisters are captured and taken away to be sold as slaves.

After months of waiting in camp, a new life awaits his siblings in the USA - but what about Elijah?
