This affectionate feature documentary from director Jamie Johnson goes behind-the scenes at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, capturing the highs and lows of four of the young contenders as they vie desperately for the winning spot. Now in its seventh year, the Junior competition differs from the adult event in one major way: all of the ten- to fifteen-year-old amateur contestants must compose and write their own entries and sing them in their national language. With no idea who would be making it past the preliminary stages, the camera crew duly travelled to numerous far-flung European destinations and filmed all the potential contenders, then followed them right through to the nerve-wracking final in Rotterdam.
