Endearing pop documentary about Junior Eurovision which, while unheard of in the UK, garners 23 million viewers in continental Europe. In following four contestants to the 2007 finals, Johnson reveals the competition to be as fierce, hilarious and downright weird as its grown-up counterpart. An entertaining look behind the scenes that also gets beneath the surface, becoming a fascinating and moving exploration of these children's lives.
