Now that your father is here you can go back to Africa
Oh Alem, I'm so sorry.
Your father is dead. I'm sorry
You get to stay!!
During the campaign, they march up to the courthouse and hand in a petition with six thousand signatures . However, the adjudicator thinks that because now that Alem has a parent, they do not have to stay. Mariam and the Fitzgerald's are shocked.
Alem get's a positive pupil certificate from the principal. He goes to the motel to show his dad but he is not there. Alem waits for a long time before a police officer comes and tells him that his father was shot and is dead. Alem is extremely sad.
Alem is allowed to stay in England. The Fitzgerald's adopt him. Ethiopia and Eritrea sign a peace treaty. Alem is a normal boy who has been emotionally shook in the past and is bound to be shook again.
