A Boeing 777 begins its descent towards Heathrow.
The wheels unfold out of the belly of the plane.
The frozen body of a stowaway is tipped out
and cuts through the clear morning sky.
In the car park of B&Q, Andy looks up.
Something is falling out of the sky.
A man crash-lands on the ground in front of him.
Stowaway is a story about a man from India who finds himself far from home and adrift from everything he knows. He hides in the wheel arch of a commercial airliner bound for the UK, in a bid to change his life.
Stowaway is the story of an extraordinary journey in search of an impossible future. But what are the rules of telling someone's story when they come from a world so different from our own?
