The dream was to create a workshop teaching kids about b-boy culture, break-dancing and Hip Hop in Northern Uganda, considered one of the most dangerous places to be a child. In the South children face the threat of poverty and disease. In the North, brutal mindless war - dividing families, and displacing millions, the fear of abduction and mutilation always looming. This film follows one man's attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop culture with the focus on break-dancing. In 2006, Abrahmz Tekya, an aids orphan, created Break-dance Project Uganda, or B.P.U., teaches three times a week to more than 300 children from all parts of the city Kampala. Many are homeless, and few can afford proper schooling, yet they walk miles to attend the classes.
