Arber Sula (21) from Albania came to Ireland when he was fifteen. He was travelling on false papers and was instantly put into care. He later filed and was granted refugee status, due to family circumstances.

Arber's mother was murdered when he was young and his family subsequently received threatening phone calls. Disturbed by these threats, Arber left Albania for Ireland. Since coming here, Arber has learned English, sat his Leaving Cert and is now studying film in Coláiste Dulaigh. He supports himself by working in a shop in Smithfield, where Bob first meets him and gets an insight into his story.

Bob then travels back to a country, that Arber scarely knows, and meets the friends and family he left behind.
