Thirteen years later, the group gets the chance to settle in the U. Together, these young men must adjust to an alien culture even as the emotional baggage of their past haunts them.
However, these newcomers, and their new friends like employment counselor Carrie Davis, strive to understand each other in this new home, as they make peace with their histories in a challenge that will change all their lives.
Written by Kenneth Chisholm kchishol rogers. A beautiful movie, taken out of the pages of recent events. The inspiring and true story of the "The Lost Boys" trekking hundreds of miles across Africa to save their lives.
The photography of the African scenes is great. A story of dedication, loyalty and the deepest meaning of family and friendship.
It is well acted, engaging, and funny as well as surprising. The ending really took me by surprise. Sadly the movie is still very relevant. There is a continuing genocide in Sudan and part of the intent of the movie is to raise awareness about what is happening right now, it is succeeds in doing that, it will have done what few movies do: it might save lives.

After numerous days of walking in the wilderness, they join a group of refugees but have to leave after they are caught by enemy soldiers and many people are killed.
After sleeping in the grassland, Theo wakes up and spots two enemy soldiers approaching them. Theo hides the rest of the siblings in the grass and lies to the soldiers that he is alone.
He is taken in custody with the soldiers. The group eventually arrives at a Sudanese refugee camp in Nairobi, Kenya , where Daniel succumbs to disease and dies.
Thirteen years later, among the thousands in the camp, the siblings win for relocation to the United States. On arrival in New York City , Abital is unexpectedly told that she is to leave for Boston , where a family awaits.
As their sister tearfully leaves, Jeremiah, Mamere and Paul board the flight to Kansas City , where they meet Carrie Davis, a brash employment counselor, who helps them find jobs, and Pamela, who provides them their house and support.
Jeremiah works at a grocery store and teaches Sunday school at a local church, but later quits the job because he was caught giving old food to a homeless person rather than throwing it away.
Paul works at a factory and makes friends with his co-workers, where he is exposed to drugs. Mamere takes two jobs as a store clerk and a security guard to pay for schooling, as he aspires to become a medical doctor.
Mamere eventually convinces Carrie to help them bring back Abital; on Christmas Eve, Carrie arrives at their home with Abital and the Lost Boys of Sudan celebrate their birthday on January 1, as they had never known the date when they were born.
Abital receives an anonymous letter stating that someone entered the refugee camp in Kenya searching for the group. Thinking it is Theo, Mamere travels to Nairobi and searches the refugee camp after they tell him that Theo is not registered.
After meeting James, an old friend, he is reunited with Theo the next day. Mamere tries to get immigration papers to multiple embassies and fails, but tells Theo that the "task" was done.
At the airport, Mamere reveals to Theo that he could not get him a passport and instead gives Theo his own passport - a deception that is the 'good lie'.
After a tearful farewell, Theo leaves and is embraced by his family upon arrival in the United States; Mamere remains in Kenya and works at the camp hospital.

If you can overcome that kind of challenge so early in life, anything else should be a relative breeze. But if any movie deserves two potentially get-out-your-hanky endings, it is this one.
