Mwamini, Admir, Daniel and Kali are tied together by their history of fleeing war torn countries with their families. When they meet in Saint-Pie X, the biggest multicultural social housing complex in Quebec City, they discover a common goal of creating a special place for kids who have experienced the challenges of coming to a new country. This special group of 20 year olds band together and through sports, music and specialized programs create an inclusive environment to inspire the next generation of kids who have arrived from countries around the world.
