Synopsis: ELIKYA is a voyage from a run-down basketball court in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the sunny, palm-tree lined roads of southern Arizona. Viewers embark on a dream chase, following 16-year-old Losmie Lutaya’s quest to use basketball as a ticket to a better life. This film peers into what it’s like to be a young woman living in the poverty-stricken “Rape Capital of the World,” and dealing with the whirlwind of obstacles that entails. Losmie has found refuge in basketball and is banking on it to make her dreams a reality. She wants to follow in the footsteps of her former teammates, who are adjusting to their new homes, 7,000 miles away from home. Ultimately, ELIKYA is a story about making it, overcoming obstacles and helping to bring positive change your country.
