Omar’s family had to fight to survive in their own country. Now they have come to the UK and at last they have a safe place to live. But then Omar meets Sam and the fighting begins all over again. Sam’s always there — in Omar’s tower block, in his class, in his face and getting under his skin. He wants to push Omar around, but Omar’s had enough and he’s ready to push back.
