Set in war-ravaged Northern Uganda, this Academy Award-nominated documentary, War Dance, will touch your heart with a real-life story about a group of children whose love of music brings joy, excitement and hope back into their poverty-stricken lives. Three children who have suffered horrific brutalities momentarily forget their struggles and they participate in music, song and dance at the school. Invited to compete in a prestigious festival in their nation’s capital, their historic journey is a stirring tale about the power of the human spirit to triumph against tremendous odds.
