Amina was found by Auntie Vickie in a cardboard box on her doorstep and has lived with her ever since. She doesn't know who or where her parents are, and she feels misunderstood. When she is bullied by Vickie's son she can't stand it any longer, so she runs away. Squatting in an empty house, she makes friends with Paul, an older teenager. Paul tries to help her find out about her real mother and become reconciled with Auntie Vickie. But the young squatters face eviction and unwelcome attention from those opposed to asylum-seekers. Soon Amina is running again, even though she doesn't know where to run to. All she can cling to is her love of song and her hope that somewhere she will belong.show more
