An African boy from the region made famous by the Hollywood film "BLOOD DIAMOND" is befriended by an American pilot who was employed to fly boxes of gems and alluvial diamonds in Sierra Leone.

This pilot met and befriended young Francis Mandewah, an impoverished Sierra Leonean boy, and gave him generous support that opened a new life of opportunity, which would eventually take Francis to America.

Along the way, Francis had many harrowing experiences, including crossing the Sahara Desert, which almost cost him his life. His challenges continued in Italy, Greece, Turkey, and in America.

In the end, Francis became aware that his real voice that has emerged through all his trials and tribulations is one of deep faith and gratitude for God's miracles and wonders in his life.
