The story revolves around four children who walk three thousand miles to get to the world cup but on the way encounter the struggles of life, including HIV and child prostitution.

The movie holds 89% on RottenTomatoes, and one review on IMDb concluded that the movie “Makes you laugh” and will “make you cry”.
