Synopsis:
On the streets of Kenya's cities, Tough Bond-brand glue is the drug of choice for kids living on their own, numbing themselves to hunger while surviving off scraps. This incredibly moving documentary provides an intimate look at four of these kids - who call themselves “Survivors” - following them over the course of three years and taking the viewer deep into their lives. Filmmakers Peck and Vandenberg employ their impressive technical virtuosity in capturing the world of these embattled but resilient children.
