A boy, his father, and their dog, Alan, set off unwillingly on a journey, after a strange illness afflicts their hometown.

They long to find a place to settle in peace and quiet, but this seems out of reach. Wandering through cities, villages and countries they encounter help and friendship, but also different kinds of prejudice and rejection. This colourful, magical realism story, with its exotic backdrops, evokes not only tales of Africa, but the fantastic adventures of Sindbad, while remaining relevant to the contemporary world.
