Jerusalem Film Festival

A hip-hop documentary about Samuel and Isaac, South Sudanese teenagers, who grew up in Israel as asylum seekers and got deported to Uganda in 2012. They now live as refugees in a boarding school after they got rescued from the civil war in South Sudan. They dream of getting the world to know of their exceptional musical talent.
Amir is an accomplished Israeli musician who arrives at the boarding school. He builds a recording studio and the three of them start making hip hop music - their mutual love.
For two whole weeks, the three create original songs, music videos and finally perform on a big stage in Kampala on New Year's Eve. The film follows the big dreams of Samuel and Isaac within the complex reality of their lives.
