Ubabalo is a glimpse into how a ball can change a country. A ball gives a leader an avenue to speak into the youth of the world, to not only coach them in soccer, but in life.

In South Africa soccer (or football) is being used to break down barriers of social status previously created by the apartheid. Their goal is to change the children, because it is the children who will grow up and change the world!

This film was shown at BAYMN FEST 2013.
