Summary:
Children without homes and without any means of support other than what they can scrounge for themselves are a world-wide phenomenon. This program looks at how they live in West Africa. Touching, shocking, this program is above all fascinating for the comparisons it invites between African children and their American counterparts when it comes to fears and dreams, to familial ties and the sense of "home."
