Not just another "oh those poor children in Africa" movie. Compelling portraits of unforgettable individuals (not just headlines and horror). Reaffirms the universality of the human experience - pain, loss, joy, humor (yes, some of it's funny), struggle, triumph, fear, ambition and love. Challenging in ways you can't imagine - yet ultimately rewarding. More than than a "documentary". An homage to beauty in people, places and spirit. Stunning visually and emotionally. A genre by itself. As a half-African and mother of small children, I never thought I could sit through it based on the description. As tough as it was at times, I'm so glad I did. Kudos to the filmakers for following their hearts and respecting their subjects - it shows.

this is an awesome movie and a must see. it made my friend cry but the movie makes you see the innocent of the youth who are affected by war and the different levels on which they are affected. a simply thing as music and dance can change a lot. as Bob Marley says, when the music hits you, you feel no pain. must see.

Very heart wrenching scene when Nancy went too visit the gravesite of her father. Found the movie too give some hope too the catastrophic events that took place in Uganda.
