This heart moving film in follows the story of one of the “witch children “from Kinshasa, Congo who had to flee to escape accusations at home. Taken in by a small band of street children, some of the estimated 30,000 that live on the street, he has a marginal existence. The children have hopes for the future and wish to make a better world for themselves through the creation of a music band and the help of a rapper, impresario along with adult members of an adult band. The film shows their desire to change and a way to make it happen through music and the help of others. This is an inspirational film which shows that despite poverty, slums and abuse, the human spirit finds a way to create.
