Summary, etc.:
Following nearly forty years of unrelenting war, peace and reconstruction are slowly arriving to Angola. Damaged first by the war for independence from Portugal, Angola was then ripped apart by a devastating civil war that orphaned thousands of children. In Huambo, Angola's second largest city, fifty five of these children are in the Okutiuka orphanage under the care of Sonia Ferreira. Sonia's boyfriend, Wilker Flores, is a death-metal guitarist who uses the brutal sounds and rhythms of his hardcore music as a path to healing. The film tracks Wilker and Sonia's dream to stage Angola's first-ever national rock concert, bringing together musicians from different provinces and different strands of the Angolan hardcore scene. As that dream unfolds in fits and starts, the bombed out and mined backdrop of the formerly stately Huambo provides scenic reminders of why hardcore music has gained a foothold there.
