Original title: The Director

Cisco and his gang of streetkids are forced to leave the city for the countryside. They spend every cent on movies and dream about making their own.

A gang of African street kids are forced to leave the big city and settle out in the countryside. A kind bar owner allows them to stay in a shed made of banana leaves in the cow den. Slowly they gain her confidence and get their own room and food in exchange for some help here and there. Cisco is the born leader of the gang and dreams about becoming a film director and open a cinema where he will show his own films. There is no lack of ideas on how to realise it. The Director is a feel-good-film about the strong bonds and loyalty that grows between friends in tough situations.
