Storyline

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.

A different, to your tastes piece
4 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

This small, independent piece aimed for family viewing is quite ambitious in it's own little way, a familiar tale of underdogs with an impossible dream chasing it no matter what circumstances set against the backdrop of one of Africa's smallest countries. It's certainly a very spirited romp, with enough dash and colour in it to make it stand out, and not afraid to tackle some darker areas while it's at it. Somehow, at just under an hour and a half, it still somehow fails to hold together and really come into one as a story, but you can't fault the good intentions behind it and you could see far worse stuff like it. **
