We Are Together

'We Are Together' tells the remarkable and moving story of a group of children who overcome hardship and loss with music. Filmed over a period of three years, it is the story of an orphanage unlike any you've ever seen, where the young singers of the Agape Choir lift their voices to create the home and family they so very much need. Life has not been easy for 12-year-old Slindile and her siblings living at the Agape Orphanage in South Africa, where most of the children have lost their parents to AIDS. There toddlers and teens squabble and stumble just like other youths, discovering themselves and craving stability. Having already borne great hardships, Slindile along with her sisters and baby brother must endure the fact that their elder brother Sifiso has been diagnosed with AIDS and is slowly wasting away due to lack of medical care. And yet, when they lift their voices in song, something extraordinary happens - they overcome their fears, band together as a family and better their lives.
