Orphaned in the brutal Balkans conflict, thirteen-year-old Josef is forced to flee across the border. Frightened, angry and deeply traumatised, he is plucked to safety by an Australian uncle he never knew existed. Josef battles with a new language, a strange landscape and a feisty cousin named Karina. Working at a native animal refuge saves him from desolation, but can Josef save the animals when they need him most?
