In a desperate attempt to return home, an abducted child soldier risks his life to flee from Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) deep in central Africa after years of being forced to fight. When capture appears imminent, he encounters a stranger who must decide whether to help him -- risking his own life, and the respect of his community.

Story by: The men, women and children in DR Congo, Central African Republic and South Sudan who shared their experiences of loss and survival. Their unified desire for peace inspired this story.
