A heartfelt documentary.
4 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story follows Scott Fifer, a volunteer, whose journeyed to a village called Tanzania at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. In an orphanage called Tunahaki, Scott meets nine gifted young orphans with a knack for acrobatics, it is there that he grows attached to them and pledges to take the orphans to America so they can perform and raise money to build a permanent home in Africa. Throughout the documentary, we follow the ambitions of Scott Fifer and his determination for the success of these nine orphans in fundraising for their future home. It is passionate, driven and an experience for both the children and viewers as we witness the transitions from Africa to America, two parallel worlds in the eyes of both Africans and Americans. The documentary offers hope in even the smallest places, a small orphanage in a village holding nine talented young children. We watch as the children are given a future filled with acrobatics in a new home. I give it a very good review, and would recommend it to anyone looking to have a glimpse into a story of great human importance.
