Two human beings: Lutfullah, a 27 year old Afghan father of two small kids, running away from war, threats and uncertainties in Afghanistan to secure a good future for his children in Australia. The author, running away from an abusive home at age 12, to look for a life of his own, lived and survived the streets, suffered abuses just the same, but made a life of his own, yet nursing the hatred and pain against his father. The book weaves the story together from out of the first ten days of Lutfullah's experience as a refugee in Australia; his difficulties, anxieties, fears, and his willingness to brave it all for the sake of his children. Painted in the book is the paradox of Lutfullah as a loving father versus the author's abusive father and how the ten days led the author to heal his wounds and forgive.
