Nya goes to the pond to fetch water for her family. She walks eight hours every day. Salva walks away from his war-torn village. He is a "lost boy" refugee, destined to cover Africa on foot, searching for his family and safety. Two young people... two stories. One country: Sudan. This mezmerizing dual narrative follows two threads - one unfolding in 2008 and one in 1985 - with one hopeful message: that even in a troubled country, determined survivors may find the future they are hoping for.
