Nancy is a 13-year-old choir singer; Rose is a 14-year-old dancer; and Dominic is a 14-year-old xylophone player. They are members of the Acholi ethnic group, living in the remote northern Uganda refugee camp of Patongo, which is under military protection by a terrorist group. When the camp’s primary school wins its regional music competition, “War Dance” follows the three kids to Kampala to the annual National Music Competition, in an effort to heal their fears and express their hopes and dreams through tribal art.
