    Synopsis: Clutching small dirty bottles to their noses, gangs of kids in Kenya sniff Tough Bond-brand glue to numb themselves against street life. Driven from their villages by poverty to nearby towns and exploding city slums, they represent a new generation of displaced youth cut off from their traditional network of elders to care for them. For three years, the two filmmakers followed four lost youngsters as they each struggle to adapt to a new urban wilderness.
