Oscar-nominated documentary charting the inspirational efforts of a group of Ugandan refugee students who enter the biggest cultural event on the Ugandan music calendar: the National Music Competition. For the past 20 years, the children of war-torn Uganda have had to contend with losing their homes, their parents and their childhoods as violence and murder swept the nation during the civil war. Many were kidnapped and forced to become child soldiers. This film tells the story of three children from the Patongo refugee camp who are determined, despite all the hardships they have faced, to compete for the big music prize.
