Published in Scotland. "Endorsed by Amnesty International"--Back cover.

Alpha Coulibaly is emblematic of the refugee crisis today - just one of millions on the move, at the mercy of people traffickers, endlessly frustrated, endangered and exploited as he attempts to rejoin his family, already in Europe.

With a visa, Alpha's journey would take a matter of hours; without one he is adrift for eighteen months.

Along the way he meets an unforgettable cast of characters, each one giving another human face to the crisis.

The book is presented in graphic novel format, with artwork created in cheap felt-tip pen and wash, materials Alpha himself might be able to access.
