A road movie with a difference. Five African children of very different backgrounds make the incredible 5000 km journey from Rwanda to South Africa to see the 2010 football World Cup. Their adventures along the way give us an insight into some of the problems facing the continent, including child soldiers, sex-trafficking and HIV/AIDS. The abiding memory of the film, however, is the cheerful banter, beaming smiles and boundless optimism of the children.
