A story made in Australia for the whole world. Young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds use music to call for all cultures to unite and live in happiness and peace. Sung in four languages: Swahili, Dinka, Kinyarwanda and English, their song delivers a strong message to other newcomers about embracing life in a new country, while never forgetting where you come from.
