Synopsis

A group of Congolese street kids shunned for being "child witches" form a band with a local rapper, and focus their creativity on making great music in this peppery tale of perseverance from director Marc-Henry Wajnberg. Determined not to succumb to the poverty all around him after being accused of witchery and winding up on the streets, resourceful street kid José (José Mawanda) assembles his friends, and seeks the help of local huster\rapper Bebson (Bebson Elemba) in recording the song that will get the masses up and dancing.
