Trash by Andy Mulligan

Raphael is a dumpsite boy in a third-world country. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it.

Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It' a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything.

The film adaptation of Trash directed by Stephen Daldry is out now.
