Simon,11, a black adopted boy and football enthusiast, travels with his Danish mother to his country of origin, Kenya. Shortly after arriving, Simon loses his beloved football. Trying to find it again, he gets lost in Kenya’s biggest slum. With his trendy shoes and nice clothes, he clearly stands out, but after being mugged, he soon looks like any other Kenyan boy. When Simon’s mother, Susanne, goes to the media and promises a reward for getting her son back, Simon is suddenly a hunted boy in the alleys of the slum – he now needs all the help he can get from his new friends.
