Once upon a time in a small town there were two children: Sanah and Barack. In this country there was famine and war: in fact their father died fighting and the mother died trying to save the two children. So the two children were homeless and wander aimlessly. They walked and walked for days and days until they arrived in Cape Town. They went to sleep under a bridge and during the day they looked for iron in order to sell it. One day they met an Italian missionary who helped the children : he brought them into a foster home. Here the boys found many friends and happiness.

Once upon a time, in Burundi there was a child called Kirikù. He was poor, and he was forced to work to live. He wanted liberty and a friend to SMILE with. One day while he went to the well to get water, he met Michael, an English kid, son of a rich man. Michael and Kirikù became friends, and the English boy realised that they had a thing in common : their SMILE. Michael's father didn’t give him attention because he only thought to his work One day Michael's father discovered the friendship with a poor kid and he forbade his son to see him again. Michael was angry and began to see Kirikù secretly. His father discovered the secret friendship and so he realised that money and different colour of skin are not important. So he decided to adopt Kirikù when the family came back to England. Nicolò Novarino, Elena Lupia, Mirko Camagna and Eleonora Padrini
