The "lost boys" of Sudan are a group of Sudanese orphans that were brought from U.N. refugee camps to the United States in 2001. In a country with more than two million casualties of the 47-year civil war, thousands of orphaned young boys suffered innumerable hardships and often death trying to make their way to safety. This film chronicles a small group of these boys in their resettlement in the U.S. and their high hopes of gaining enough education to cultivate a life that will someday lead them back to their own country.
