The first story is about a child, who on escaping from a rebel camp hijacks a car, transpiring in a journey that unravels her plight and prods deep into traumatic issues of children involved in armed conflicts. The next story is about a boy, a drug peddler, and his journey into the drug world.

The third story is about a man, an elephant poacher, who ends up killing 15 elephants to fend for himself and his young wife.
