Orphaned in one of Africa’s cruelest civil wars, Peter Dut and Santino Chuor survived lion attacks and militia gunfire before reaching a refugee camp in Kenya along with thousands of other children. From there, they come to the United States, where they were confronted with the abundance and alienation of contemporary American suburbia. 2003, U.S., color, in English and Dinka with English subtitles, 87 minutes.
