Simon,11, a black adopted boy and soccer enthusiast, travels with his Danish mother to his country of origin, Kenya. Soon after arriving, Simon loses his beloved soccer ball. When he tries to find it, he gets lost in the biggest city-slum in Africa. With his trendy shoes and fancy clothes, he clearly stands out, but after he gets mugged, he soon looks like any other African boy. When Simon's mom, Susanne, goes to the media promising a reward for getting her son back, Simon is suddenly a hunted boy in the alleyways of the slum—he now needs all the help he can get from his new friends.
