Leonard is on school holidays but things aren't going to plan: his friends are far away, his nana is no fun, and his dad is away working. So Leonard takes the bus to Elmina, a historic European fort built to imprison West African slaves shipped off to America. Before Leonard knows what's happening, he is kidnapped by a gang , who plan to use his angel-face to fleece the tourists. Will Leonard escape from this living nightmare?
