In a desperate attempt to return home, an abducted child soldier risks his life to flee from Joseph Konyâ€™s Lordâ€™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 â€“ risking his own life, and the respect of his community.
