Details About the Film

This film is part of the series SHOW ME: Season 3

Orphaned and displaced during the Second Sudanese Civil War, siblings Jeremiah (Ger Duany), Mamere (Arnold Oceng), Paul (Emmanuel Jal), and Abital (Kuoth Wiel) spend their adolescence in a refugee camp. After winning a relocation lottery to the United States, Abital is placed with a family in Boston while her brothers are sent to Kansas City. Shocked by this separation and struggling with a new culture, the brothers find support in Carrie (Reese Witherspoon), a brash employment counselor going beyond her job description. This screening will be followed by a community conversation led by the City of Refuge, exploring topics such as refugee resettlement and family reunification.

Please note that FREE tickets for the public will be available at the Ragtag Box Office starting Thursday, June 27 at 12PM.
