In this documentary, several young people talk about their experiences as refugees from southern Sudan during the war, and as returnees afterwards. A young woman speaks of the importance of refugees being able to find employment on a level with their qualifications in the asylum country. Other interviewees speak of trying to retain traditional customs when far from home, and of the need for solidarity among fellow-refugees. The last speaker stresses that the peaceful resolution of problems will save lives.
