Jeremy Xido's documentary Death Metal Angola follows Sonia Ferreira, who runs an orphanage for Angolan children whose lives have been devastated by war, and her boyfriend, Wilker Flores, a guitarist in the country's thriving death-metal music scene as they attempt to stage the country's first-ever national concert. The filmmakers show how the duo believe that the cathartic music that is quite popular in Angola can help young people exorcise their pain.
