The extraordinary story of three Rwandan kids who walk 3000 miles to the Soccer World Cup in South Africa. Using a sack load of ingenuity and sass (and a World Cup wall chart for a map), our pint-sized protagonists set off through the endless horizons of Africa in pursuit of an unlikely dream. And as they walk they gather a tribe - a ragamuffin team - of broken and brilliant characters who help them negotiate a way through a series of glorious, dangerous, hilarious and often bizarre situations. Through these kids, we will encounter an Africa few people ever get to see; experience the hard reality of an epic walk through seven countries; as well as the joy, laughter and hope - 'the ubuntu' - that comes from making an incredible journey together.

Makes you laugh, makes you cry, real, sad and full of joy, energy and life
Great film, full of energy and colour from the start. Very unusual, not like other films, seems not to be in a mould. Great values of loyalty, friendship and courage in the context of horror and terror. The reality of life in the midst of warfare and corruption was very evident and yet the humour and the warmth made it entertaining and credible. It is the kind of film which children can enjoy because the story is simple and clear and yet there are depths which are profoundly moving for those capable of maturer insights. It is a good antidote to the slick and formulaic films around at the moment. It has heart, it is insightful and manages to be highly entertaining for all ages. Well done on a small budget.
