The story of one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan is told by Manyang Reath. At age 3 his father barely escapes capture and leaves to join the south Sudanese rebel forces, his mother takes his little sister and runs to save herself and the infant girl from human trafficking as sex slaves. Manyang is whisked up by his uncle who races with Manyang to cross the river into Ethiopia. The soldier are firing at each other from shore to shore, dead bodies of those killed in the crossfire drift past Manyang and his Uncle. Then, just as they approach the other shore and reach safety, the unthinkable happens!! Manyang's uncle is shot out from under him! Alone, to make his way at 3, to survive the refugee camp, to scavenge for food and shelter, sometimes sleeping in trees to avoid tigers . . . this is a world no one knows, except the refugees. Since Manyang came to America at age 15, he has single-mindedly pursued his dream of
reaching back to help Sudanese still in refugee camps and suffering the ravages of war.
