“Guess what, the ghetto went to the parliament!” This documentary is about the life of Bobi Wine and the ideas that he represents. It is about his fight for justice and his journey from ghetto to parliament. But it is not only about Bobi Wine, it is also about Uganda and the challenges the country is facing.
Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine, is a successful musician and, more importantly, a freedom fighter from Uganda. From the slums he works his way up to become an elected representative in national parliament, where his outspokenness sets him apart… and gets him into trouble. Meanwhile, he continues to champion a better and more just Uganda.
