In 2010, Fields of Growth International brought the sport of lacrosse to Uganda, East Africa. Shortly after, plans to create Africa’s first national lacrosse team were put into motion. Kandote chronicles the journey of Africa’s first national men’s lacrosse team, Team Uganda, as they work towards achieving their goal of competing in the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships held in Denver, Colorado.
Kandote focuses on five players with differing pasts and presents as they experience the trials and tribulations of life and lacrosse. Viewers will step into the lives of a group of men who have lost parents to HIV/AIDS, homes to the government, and their adolescence to the violent life of an LRA child soldier, but who have all found solace, escape, and a family through the brotherhood of lacrosse.
Below is the trailer for Kandote:
