Four homeless 12-year-old boys break away from a larger street gang and spend
their days living by a port. Ali Zaoua is the strangest of the quartet,
who often speaks of sailing off to a distant island lit by two suns. The
boys' former gang locates them and, as punishment for their defection, pelts
them with rocks. The attack kills Ali, leaving the boys to provide him a
funeral fit for a prince.
