SOKA AFRIKA documents the lives of two young African men, Kermit from South Africa and Ndomo from Cameroon, each taking very different paths in pursuit of their dreams: success in professional football on the world stage. Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country. The story that unfolds around these two young men reveals the struggle that is life in much of Africa and demonstrates how football is a vital lifeline to which many will desperately cling.
