Abel is a fifteen-year-old boy living in Uganda’s capital, Kampala. His father works for a motorcycle taxi business, known as a “boda boda.” After Abel’s father is injured and cannot continue working, Abel becomes the primary source of income for his family. Abel is friends with a group of hustlers and petty thieves, and he finds work by driving his friends to and from their crime scenes. When Abel’s motorcycle is stolen, he must find a new way to continue his job and provide for his family.
