Anuol Deng (30) is a newly qualified lawyer who, after studying in Britain, returns to South Sudan soon after the country’s independence. But coming home is not easy; the readjustment of living and working there holds more challenges than he has foreseen. When a new bloody civil war breaks out he suddenly has to flee the same bullets that chased him as a little boy.

History is repeating itself and his motherland's violent past haunts him down. Will Anuol be able to overcome all the hardship and reconcile with his past?
