A documentary by Nika Saravanja, 85'


Ian, the little engineer and Pro, the little rebel are two 9 years old best friends, growing up in the suburbs of Nairobi. Their biggest dream is to become famous acrobats and travel somewhere far away. One day, Steve, their superhero and charismatic acro-trainer, announces that there will be a chance for some of the kids to travel and perform in Europe. Ian and Pro start training even harder hoping they will be the chosen ones. As the trip is getting closer, the tension between the two friends starts to build up, their self-esteem is shaky, and a family tragedy seems to destroy the dream of the boys. Will they find the strength to overcome everything and make their wishes come true ?
