In rural Ghana, Daniel Sekyere, a 15-year-old boy, works in illegal gold mining to support himself. In the gold extraction area where Daniel works, many children are employed in dangerous, physically demanding work as they extract gold from large stones.

While Daniel dreams of becoming a pastor, the demanding gold mining work takes up the majority of his time and he struggles to complete primary school. He is one of over 2,000 Ghanaian children in a similar situation. Physically in pain and yearning to continue his education and become a pastor, Daniel seeks support from Michael Obuodum, a former miner and compassionate radio host in the community. Guided by Michael and a local NGO, “The Social Support Foundation,” Daniel must choose the between the immediate struggle for food and the pursuit of his dreams.

THERE IS NO PLACE FOR YOU HERE is the story of Daniel’s struggle, told through bold, cinematic scenes, from deep underground to the hope of a Ghanaian church service. Ultimately, the film is a statement about the importance of seeking help, even in the worst of situations.
