This novel depicts the loss of two countries: the country of origin and the country of immigration. The protagonist is born in Saudi Arabia and knows no other country. But he is treated as a despicable worker. Finally, he decides to return to his homeland, Eritrea, but finds that the homeland is not like him. It is the condition of generations that were lost in the middle of the road without a sense of belonging.
