"The boy from upstairs plays in the yard. His name is Matata. I call him Mate for short. When I see him I shout, 'Hello Mate!', but he doesn't join in my games."
When Mate moves in upstairs, he has an instant friend. But Mate is shy and learning to adapt to a new home. There's a new family downstairs too. A secret family.
Where have the families come from and what happens when the downstairs family goes missing?
Where will their silver treasures lead?
A celebration of the power of friendship in the face of displacement and loneliness.
