A feature documentary about Street Child World Cup soccer tournament in 2010.

"The intention in 'Street Kids United' is to capture the intoxication and anticipation of the 'real' World Cup as it approaches just a couple of months later," Pritchard said. "South Africa will be under the spotlight for the 'real' World Cup and the authorities will try to present the best image it can for the eyes of the world. Will this mean the police sweep up Durban's street children and dump them in the bush as been done in the past? Or will the World Cup force the authorities to come up with constructive solutions to child homelessness?"
