The everyday African boy life in the small village in Gambia is one of hardship. Despite Aliou's talent in football and exceptional performance in school, this African boy seems destined to live out his days in poverty like many of the villagers.
Then, with the sudden death of his father and no financial backing to continue studying, Aliou must make a firm decision. It doesn't help that he is being pressured from his love's family to marry quickly.
Is the journey known as the Backway the solution?
Libya is lawless and a hotbed for militias after the Arab Spring, looking for opportunities to cash in on African migrants heading to Europe.
Aliou's story is a reminder of the dangers that await many African migrants trekking, hoping for financial independence in the lands of Europe.
