Asad is a young Somalian refugee in Ethiopia with a brilliant head for business. As a budding entrepreneur, he is in search of new opportunities abroad. And so he embarks on an epic journey to South Africa, hoping to find a promised land. But as he arrives horrific xenophobic violence ruptures society, sending the country – and Asad’s plans - into chaos.
