The Other Kids

Java Films Exclusives
This inspiring story reveals the power of football to change people’s lives. Hundreds of millions of kids play football every day. For many of them, football grants are the only way to access education or the ticket to a better future. In some cases, it is their only way to survive.. The life of Mubiru Rigan depends on one of these sport grants. Rigan dreams of being the next Fernando Torres and scoring the goal that brings Uganda their first African Cup. But he never had an easy life. When he was 3 years old, his mother abandoned him in the toxic waste dump that surrounds Nelson Mandela’s National Football Stadium in Uganda. For a while, Rigan survived by selling scrap metal and stealing, always on the run from local mafias. There, he was discovered by a trainer, who got him a sports grant that allowed him to go back to school, eat every day and play football.. THE OTHER KIDS follows Rigan for over a year as he overcomes numerous challenges in pursuit of his dream.
