Summary

A boy who lives and works on a rubbish mountain, finds a bag with money and a map, which the police are very keen to get their hands on

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything...

NOTE : Contains violence including one of the young boys being beaten up by a policeman who is questioning him. Characters (in their mid teens) drink alcohol on occasion.
