"Africa United" tells the extraordinary story of three Rwandan children and their bid to achieve their lifelong dream - to take part in the opening ceremony of he 2010 Football World Cup in Johannesburg. On the way to the vital selection trial, disaster strikes when Fabrice, Dudu and Beatrice board the wrong bus and cross into the Congo; without papers, money or a believable story, they are escorted to a UNICEF refugee camp. But with considerable ingenuity and sass (and a World Cup wall chart for a map), our pint-sized heroes escape the camp and set off through the endless horizons of Africa in pursuit of their dream, picking up along the way a "dream team" of displaced kids, who help them negotiate a series of glorious, dangerous and hilarious adventures. Through their 3000 mile journey, we encounter an Africa few people have ever seen; experience an epic adventure through seven countries; and feel the joy, laughter and hope that comes from making an incredible journey together. "Africa United" is a dramatic, heartfelt and enchanting story set to enthral audiences worldwide.
