Kabwita is a young farmer dreaming of building a home for his family in rural Congo. Poverty stricken, it is not uncommon for them to eat grilled rat for dinner. To make a living, he has to rely on his two main resources – his hands. Chopping down a nearby tree (a process which takes an entire day) allows him to produce charcoal which he can then attempt to sell in a nearby city. However just getting there requires a backbreaking 50km journey along dusty roads, pushing the charcoal on his bike the entire way, often with only his competitors for company. Once there he discovers the true value of his efforts, and the price of his dreams. This engrossing documentary never sentimentalizes or patronizes its subject, painting a vivid portrait of his world, culminating in an uplifting and moving musical finale.
