Drinking from the Well captures the real lives of Ugandan youth struggling to create a positive future in an environment that tests every ability to survive. Each day, the next generation of Ugandans must surmount these obstacles in order to begin thinking about the future. Somehow, Happy, Shamirah, B-Start, Kenny and Jajanelly, have done much more than this. Under the umbrella of the Amagezi Gemaanyi Youth Association (AGYA), these five have united to push against the odds and forge a future rich with possibility. The lives of these five youth meld with the stories of the other slum citizens to tell the compelling story of people who will not quit. Difficulties are pushed aside as the youth gather around to drink deeply from the well.
