Filmed on location in Dungu, Democratic Republic of Congo. This short-length documentary is a glimpse into the work that UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) oversees in Dungu (Democratic Republic of Congo).

In Dungu, there are hundreds of IDPs (Internal Displaced People) due to the attacks of the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army), on the local population, rapping women and kidnapping little kids to train them as child soldiers.

The work of the UNHCR field officers is not easy as their own lives and dreams become intertwined with the realities they face.
