Kassim's story is so remarkable that its almost unbelievable, the adversity he has had to overcome and the success he has achieved. I think what struck me most watching this was his smile, how happy he seemed and then the director would catch a moment, as he looked out a bus window or discussed his grandmother and shadows would cover his eyes.
Filmmaker Kief Davidson did a great job here, and you feel as if for just a moment you understand Kassim I was engrossed in watching him train for his next fight, keep his family together and try to keep fame and a hip-hop lifestyle at bay. I know I was brought to tears when he is finally given a military pardon by the Ugandan president and is able to reunite with his family, going back to the refugee camp a hero and sobbing on his fathers grave.
