This is an historical documentary movie about the young boys who race camels. Over the years, camel racing has been a popular sport in the Arab world. In the United Arab Emirates, this sport uses young boys from other countries as their jockeys. The trafficking of these young boys is the focus of this documentary. The training conditions of these boys have been part of the tradition for many years. The living and working environments are difficult, and they would not be approved in many countries. The authorities have been looking into this illicit trade. There have been laws passed, trying to stop the trade, or at least improve conditions for the children.
