A literary thriller that addresses the fate of undocumented refugees who struggle to survive in nations that do not want them. Keita Ali is on the run. He is desperate to flee Zantoroland, a mountainous black island that produces the fastest marathoners in the world.

But when Keita fails to place among the top finishers, rather than being sent back to his own country, he goes into hiding.
