From the festival announcement:
"Canada's Daniel Ziv has made the most successful documentary in Indonesian history. Shining a light on urban poverty, it's also made stars of three inspired (and inspirational) Jakarta street musicians whose talent is only rivalled by their resourcefulness. Life is hard for these troubadours but commitment and passion always have a fighting chance."
