Synopsis:
Amidst national violence, 200 courageous Muslims and Christians – diverse young women and men – unite successfully in Jos, central Nigeria. Refusing to be enemies, they are together during days and evenings of the 2010 International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Communication. They are tense yet excited to finally cross lines of religion, economics, tribe, and gender to transcend the status quo and discover empathy for each other's personal life experiences. Together they realize that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard" while listening-to-learn and thus dignifying themselves and the "others." Face-to-face and in small circles, they begin with ice-breakers and continue in depth to discover one another's equal humanity – fear, grief, needs, hopes, and concrete plans for a shared future. These determined young Nigerians illustrate how others worldwide can successfully connect with communication excellence to create authentic community. The film's co-production is an example of African-North American collaboration.
