A game of hide n’seek turns into a nightmare for Matthew when he finds himself transported to another country where hiding can mean the difference between life and death. Ten- year-old Matthew is simply playing hide n’ seek with a group of friends in a supermarket when a shop assistant finds him and drags him into the store room at the back of the shop. However, this is no ordinary store room; it is another city in another country. What secrets does this place conceal? Who is the shop assistant? Matthew embarks on a journey where he encounters war, the suffering of a nation.
