Synopsis:

RWANDA-17 is a compelling African success story, told through the inspirational journey of its youngest rising stars: the Rwandan Under 17 football team. Born just after the 1994 genocide, they overcame enormous odds to qualify for the 2011 Under-17 World Cup in Mexico. The first Rwandans to reach this level of world-class football, these young players -- more than half of them orphaned by war -- show how discipline, determination and uncompromising team spirit leads to the success that can inspire a nation. Their story represents Rwanda's breathtaking evolution and hopes for a better future, with good leadership and unity at the heart of not only sporting success but also a nation's efforts to achieve reconciliation and prosperity.

RWANDA-17 is presented by award winning reporter Sorious Samura who became well known for his filming of the brutal civil war in his home country, Sierra Leone. Having experienced the huge challenges a country faces in the wake of conflict, Sorious finds out how the Rwandans succeeded in restoring peace and rebuilding their country.
