Synopsis

The struggles and achievements of six very different individuals bring to light the genocide in Darfur, Sudan and illustrate the absolute need to get involved.
From a UCLA graduate in Manhattan Beach, California, to a Darfurian woman who joins rebel forces, to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, to a United Nations humanitarian on the ground in Sudan, to an internationally known actor and activist, and finally to a community leader in a West Darfur refugee camp, the film portrays the heroic efforts of six people trying to resolve a humanitarian tragedy unfolding before our very eyes.
