    Carol Lee returns to Africa, the country of her childhood - and to Soweto, the place where hundreds of protesting schoolchildren were killed in 1976. She meets one hungry boy called Freedom. As the links emerge between Freedom's story today, and the Children's Uprising thirty years ago, Carol begins a personal quest. Her journey brings her to the leaders of this event, revealing how their courage helped change a nation - and why speaking the truth mattered more than their lives. This inside view of South Africa's struggle to meet its past as well as its future brings together the remarkable stories of two very different African childhoods.
