The World Cup in South Africa provides the focus for this uplifting film that will leave even the most disappointed England fan with a warm glow. It begins in Rwanda, with three children so determined to see the Cup, and make their own footballing dreams come true, that they decide to walk the 3000 miles to Johannesburg. This tackles some hard issues associated with Africa such as poverty, AIDS and sex-trafficking, but also celebrates the resilience of the children, the beauty of their continent and the hopes that they share with every child. It's also very funny - a real winner.
