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.

The Film Which Shows Reality
17 May 2011 | by dorianne-barlaguetSee all my reviews

I think it's a well made film because this film is for families and for all ages, the soundtrack is gorgeous and brilliant, it's entertaining. In spite of the actors are not really actors, but it is not really important. The film is fantastic, full of energy, passion, adventure, courage, humour, amazing, awesome. I laughed much during the film. The film offers something fun and offers food for thought. This film shows reality in Africa because people do not have money to make houses or a ball to play football. For a moment I think I cried because the end of the film is sad.

Go see the film, it's really interesting and entertaining !
