Synopsis

Shedrick Yarkpai, a Liberian refugee living in Australia, is the target of a racial epithet hurled at him from a city bus driver while boarding the bus. Rob Moser, a white Australian attorney who has befriended Shedrick, wants to file a complaint and have the driver fired, but Shedrick balks after discovering that he must give his name. This leads to Shedrick’s confession about his 10-year journey from his home in war-torn Liberia to refugee camps in Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire, where he survived squalor, hunger and disease. He was rescued from this hopelessness by his Uncle John but was forced to assume the identity of John’s dead son. Now safe in Australia, Shedrick wants to reclaim his identity. Rob believes it can happen with a simple legal procedure, but John, suspicious of Rob’s motives, is ferociously against it, forcing Shedrick to choose between reclaiming his identity and his loyalty to the man who saved his life.
