As he tries to navigate his community’s competing beliefs of animism and Christianity, as well as traditional versus modern thought, Chike begins to recognize that if he and his family are ever to break free from the interminable cycle of scarcity, he must follow an uncharted path away from everything he knows.As he journeys alone into the world beyond, Chike experiences even more cruelty, prejudice, and loss. But as he bravely presses on, searching for any signs of hope or opportunity, he encounters unexpected help amid the harm when he finds friends who continue to point him in the right direction.
