This film by Paul Taylor, tells the story of a group of children who overcome hardship with music. Filmed over 3 years, it is the story of an orphanage where the young singers of the Agape Choir lift their voices to create the home and family they need so much. Life has not been easy for 12-year-old Slindile and her siblings in South Africa. They squabble and stumble like any other youths, discovering themselves yet in need of stability. Slindile must endure the fact that her eldest brother Sifiso has been diagnosed with AIDs and is slowly wasting away due to lack of medical care. Yet when they sing, they overcome their fears, band together, and better their lives. Alicia Keys & Paul Simon appear.
