Synopsis:
Uganda, 1989. A young rebel who claims to be visited by spirits, Joseph Kony, forms a movement against the central power: the LRA, The Lord’s Resistance Army. An “army” that grew by kidnapping teenagers – more than 60 000 over 25 years – of which less than half came out of the bush alive. Geofrey, Nighty and Michael, a group of friends, were among these teenagers, kidnapped at 12 or 13. Today, in their effort to rebuild their lives and go back to normality, they re-visit the places that marked their stolen childhood. At the same time victims and murderers, witnesses and perpetra-tors of horrific acts that they don’t fully understand, they are forever the wrong elements which society struggles to accept.
