Summary

A teenage boy trying to scavenge enough to live on in an e-waste dump in Ghana gets caught up in a gang war.

Theo lives and works in Agbogbloshie in Ghana, a vast dumping ground for the world's broken electronics. He spends his days scouring the trash for scraps of metal to sell for cash, while dreaming of going to school and escaping this harsh life. The money Theo makes is barely enough to pay for lessons, so when when Emmanuel turns up with talk of buried treasure, Theo sees a chance to get out of Trashland.
But Emmanuel's presence draws the attention of a local gang, and Theo starts to wonder if his new friend is keeping dangerous secrets.

Content advisory

A couple of instances of mild swearing.
