A homeless boy and his father, who doesn’t earn enough to pay the rent, live in an airport, moving from terminal to terminal. The boy describes their existence—sleeping, sitting up, washing in the restroom and trying not to be noticed. The boy’s loneliness, anger and longing are vividly described in text and pictures and he finally finds a glimmer of hope when a trapped bird finally finds its freedom.
