GREAT TRUE STORY
FANTASTIC TRUE STORY ABOUT SURVIVAL. ENDED UP WATCHING TWICE JUST BECAUSE IT WAS THAT GOOD. JUST TO THINK THAT SOME PEOPLE MUST ENDURE HARDSHIPS THAT OTHERS NEVER THINK ARE STILL IN THE WORLD TODAY, SHOWS HOW HUMAN NATURE CAN ENDURE MORE THEN THE EVERYDAY EFFECTS THAT WE HERE CAN NEVER IMAGINE.

Amazing True Story! A MUST SEE!!
Haven't received my DVD yet, but I saw this DVD before I purchased it and LOVED IT!!!
This story is inspirational and can cause a huge increase in the gratitude of the viewer. There were tears, smiles and in the end....a renewed appreciation for the USA. My hats off to the people who made this documentary and those who helped those boys. May God continue to bless each one of you as well as each of the Lost Boys of Sudan.

This DVD will definitely change your perspective on life in America and the wars taking place in Africa. The things the Lost Boys were able to accomplish are amazing. The struggles that they went through and the obstacles they were able to overcome.... simply speechless

My sister recommended this movie to me and I didn't think I was going to like it since it’s a documentary but when I started looking at it was I really got interested in the story. Even though this is a sad true story, the movie was funny.

Unforgettable film of strength, purpose & hope:A Beacon
This excellent documentary follows the lives of three "Lost Boys" trek to a new and exceedingly different life in the United States after their heroing exodus across the deserts of Sudan, Ethiopia and finally settling in a refugee camp in Kenya. The horrors of ethnic cleansing in Sudan, then again in Ethiopia, some losing their families and some not knowing if their parents were dead or alive, walked 1,000 miles for over 10 years in search of safety. Now, grown young men, the "Lost Boys" are questioning the empty lifestyles of the Americans while bolstering their faith despite their horrific fight for survival. After seeing this film, I knew I had to have it! I share this DVD with friends and the story encourages me when I begin to fall into some foolish, shallow indulgence.
These "boys" have changed my life and blessed me with their overcoming strength, determination, stamina, and peaceful spirits. I know once you see it, you will want to have it in your collection too! What a marvellous eye-opener to our human spirits and our faith in God, Who surely has grown tired of humankind's self-demise, yet continues to replenish our souls with His love and mercy.Read full review
