È l'aprile 1978: sono passati tre anni da quando un misterioso virus ha decimato uno dopo l'altro tutti gli adulti di Berlino. In una città spettrale e decadente, gli unici superstiti sono i ragazzi e le ragazze divisi in gruppi rivali, che ogni giorno lottano per sopravvivere con un'unica certezza: dopo i sedici anni, quando meno se lo aspettano, il virus ucciderà anche loro. Tutto cambia quando qualcuno rapisce il piccolo Theo e lo porta via dall'isola dove viveva con Christa e le ragazze dell'Havel. Per salvare il bambino, Christa ha bisogno dell'aiuto di Jakob e dei suoi compagni di Gropiusstadt: insieme dovranno attraversare una Berlino fantasma fino all'aeroporto di Tegel, covo del più violento gruppo della città. Là, i fuochi che salgono nella notte confondono le luci con le ombre, il bene con il male, la vita con la morte. E quando sorgerà l'alba del nuovo giorno, Jakob e Christa non saranno più gli stessi. «Tutto l'amore che vorremmo lasciare sulla terra, dietro di noi, prima di morire, è difficile chiuderlo dentro delle parole.»

One night before putting him to bed, Enaiatollah's mother tells him three things: don't use drugs or weapons, don't cheat, don't steal. The next day he wakes up to find she isn't there. Ten-year-old Enaiatollah is left alone at the border of Pakistan to fend for himself. In a book that takes a true story and shapes it into a beautiful piece of fiction, Italian novelist Fabio Geda describes Enaiatollah's remarkable five-year journey from Afghanistan to Italy where he finally managed to claim political asylum aged fifteen. His ordeal took him through Iran, Turkey and Greece, working on building sites in order to pay people-traffickers, and enduring the physical misery of dangerous border crossings squeezed into the false bottoms of lorries or trekking across inhospitable mountains. A series of almost implausible strokes of fortune enabled him to get to Turin, find help from an Italian family and meet Fabio Geda, with whom he became friends. The result of their friendship is this unique book in which Enaiatollah's engaging, moving voice is brilliantly captured by Geda's subtly simple storytelling. In Geda's hands, Enaiatollah's journey becomes a universal story of stoicism in the face of fear, and the search for a place where life is liveable.
