When a group of illegal African immigrants arrives by container ship in the port of Le Havre, young Idrissa is the only one to escape the border guards. The first friendly face he sees is Marcel, an ageing shoe shiner and one time artist who takes pity on him and welcomes him into his home. Marcel, with the help of his friends, keeps Idrissa in hiding and, learning the boy’s story, sets about trying to get him to London, the original end destination of the ship.
