Kenya native Kalu is the hotshot star striker of the “Malindi Sharks,” though he dreams of playing professional soccer. One day, Kalu gets an offer to play soccer on a second tier team in South Africa on the same day his father is killed in an accident and he unknowingly is exposed to the HIV virus. Kalu moves to urban Johannesburg to discover he’s no longer a local hero, even meeting resistance from his own team. Back on the soccer field, Kalu's new coach Valentine must convince his players to forget their differences and play as a team. Kalu's light-hearted “Black Stars” teammate Jabu befriends him and helps Kalu turn rivals into teammates. As he struggles to find his way in a strange place, Kalu begins a tepid friendship with Ify, the coach’s daughter. Their friendship grows as Ify seeks to thwart the unwanted advances of team owner Goodwill, who says that if she will not be intimate with him, her father’s job is in jeopardy. Meanwhile, Kalu’s body battles the spreading HIV virus.
Excellent! Watch it!
Wonderfully shot, directed, and acted. A well-told and engaging story about life, soccer, and HIV/AIDS. It takes place in Africa but is relevant to young people everywhere, including the U.S. This is a feel-good movie that addresses a serious national and international health epidemic through the experiences of a young Kenyan soccer player. A must see for anyone who wants to learn more about prevention, testing, and how HIV/AIDS affects the human body. Good entertainment with a valuable message.
Such a bold and moving statement about the promise and folly of youth, as well as an informational tale about the spread of this insidious disease. The acting is stellar and the cinematography is gorgeous. This is one of the best films I've seen this --- or any-- year. Highly recommended.
A fascinating 'inside' story!
It is not often when one comes across a movie that can entertain, inspire and also teach about a critically important subject all in one package but Inside Story manages to do just that. This movie should be seen around the world. We'll all be better off for it.
