When you are a little orphanage boy who nobody wants – then you might as well be dead, is what Rasmus thinks. But then he gets an idea. He could run away from the orphanage, go out into the world and find someone who wants him. But it didn’t quite turn out the way he’d imagined. Anyway, he meets Oscar, the tramp and Rasmus becomes a vagabond too.
