Told through the eyes of three children, War/Dance follows the courageous efforts of a refugee camp school as they pour their hearts into winning Uganda’s National Music Competition. After two decades of civil war between the LRA rebels and the government, there is little sign of peace on the horizon. But amidst the grief and violence, voices are heard – children’s voices – singing strong, without fear. Their bodies shake and stomp to the rhythms of their ancestors. They dance about their homeland, they dance about their future, they dance to be children…and they dance to win. Over 20,000 schools will compete, but only one will go home the champion, and no one expects it to be Patongo…schools in refugee camps don’t win awards. The war has stolen everything: their parents, their homes, and their childhood. 60,000 people crowd Patongo’s endless squalor. There is no electricity, no running water, and no safe place. Despite the odds, the students endlessly practice their performances driven by heart, talent, and the need to rebuild their lives. If their bus can safely make it through rebel territory, they’ll take the stage and give it their all. Win or lose, these children will show what true heart can achieve.
