Above average inspirational documentary. Sheds light on issues in Africa and with integration of immigrants to the U.S.

The title is a bit of a misnomer....To quote one of the lost boys, "We knew through our journey, that nobody was helping us, but God."
Otherwise, it was an amazing story.

Great documentary about the lost boys of Sudan, their travails in Africa and their introduction to U.S. culture. The insanity and brutality of American culture and life is exposed by the African men who are used to close family and human relationships. Brilliant and fascinating.

My reviews (like all reviews.) are opinion based, film is very subjective as are all art mediums, reviews are meant to be informative and humorous.

Plot: 4 stars ****
Gore: 0 stars

This documentory will open your eyes (if not already open) to some of the problems of Africa.
It follows several "lost boys" as they first come to America and adapt to our lifestyle and culture.
Powerful and full of truth it is a sociological adventure, a glance at our culture from an outside perspective. Inspiring and heartbreaking. Full of win.
