The documentary, set in one of the largest African slums, shows that even behind walls made of corrugated sheet metal and clay there are people striving to change their world for the better.

Don is a photographer who lives in the Kenyan slum of Kibera and tries to capture the better aspects of his home in his photos. The film is based on his narration, in which he presents a varied mix of people who have the desire and the will to face an unfriendly destiny and an inhospitable environment. For example, HIV-infected teacher Bent who has set up a nursery for children from HIV-positive families, or former boxer Tanker, who teaches children self-defence in his boxing school. The film by Czech director Martin Páva brings to light the unique atmosphere of this poverty-stricken district, even when it is troubled by the dramatic events associated with the presidential election.
