Akuol de Mabior was 16 when her father was killed in a helicopter crash – just three weeks after his inauguration as Sudan’s vice president. John Garang de Mabior, who had led the liberation movement for over twenty years, is now revered as the founding father of South Sudan. Born and raised in exile, the director follows her mother and sister to the young republic where they now live and where they have both found their roles. In the meantime the young, unmarried Akuol de Mabior asks herself how and if this country torn by civil war can ever become her home. Using her camera, she begins to look for answers. De Mabior’s search is accompanied by fear and doubt.

Aktion gegen den Hunger has been active in South Sudan since 1985 and provides families with services surrounding nutrition and livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene as well as health services. South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world and armed conflicts and an authoritarian government shape the lives of the people. In addition, there are severe natural disasters such as floods or extreme drought. Around 7.2 million of the country's approximately twelve million people are dependent on humanitarian aid, including many children.
