About the Movie
This feature-length documentary tells the uplifting story of a group of six Sierra Leonean musicians who came together to form a band while living as refugees in the Republic of Guinea. A brutal civil war (1991-2002) forced them from their homes in Sierra Leone. Despite the unimaginable horrors of civil war, they were saved through their music. Through music they find a place of refuge, a sense of purpose and a source of power. The film follows the band over the course of three years as they make the difficult decision to return to their war-torn country and realize their dream of recording an album of their original music.
The more I see this movie the more I love it
This is a movie that lifts the spirit and all have you dancing in your seat. An incredible documentary about musicians who survive a tragic civil war and inspire others through music. Really, really good music that makes the movie worth watching on its own. The characters are so likable, you will feel closer to them and probably to anyone you're watching with by the end as well.
