A group of homeless friends try to survive at night in the streets of the capital of Sierra Leone. Without exception, these so-called Freetown Streetboys, who also have women among them, have physical limitations. In poetic images, this poignant documentary reveals the inner world of the six, who have been discarded by the outside world and therefore completely depend on each other. Behind their pain and sorrow, dreams lie hidden that the buddies draw strength from.
