Africa United is a film about a football fairytale

The anticipation and excitement of South Africa's World Cup is the backdrop of a new British film that opens this week. Africa United is the story of a group of Rwandan children who embark on a 3,000 mile journey with the dream of taking part in the opening ceremony in Johannesburg.

The football fairytale follows their adventures as they survive wild animals and battle the elements.

BBC Breakfast met two of the film's stars, Roger Nsengiyumva and Sherrie Silver as well as the director Debs Gardner-Paterson.
