Winner of numerous awards around the world, this is a charming fable about four childhood friends who are former gang members, living on the streets. One of them, Ali, has a vivid imagination and wants to become a sailor so that he can visit all the places that he has heard about. When he is killed by one of their former gang, the other three determine to give him the burial at sea that he would have wanted and vow to find the island with two suns that Ali dreamed about, whilst at the same time transforming their own lives.
