When a Bedouin boy, Omar, is separated from his family in Libya during the Second World War, he makes his way to the coast to look for them. Tired and hungry, Omar is taken in and cared for by two Australian soldiers, Bluey and Albert, as they struggle to survive during the Siege of Tobruk. When Bluey disappears during a patrol, Omar is determined to find him, and uses all his knowledge of the desert as he searches for his friend. This is a story of friendship found in the most unusual of places, and a boy's determination against all odds.
