They are just a few of the 25,000 3-13-year-old "Lost Boys" fleeing rebel soldiers, famine and through the UN 3,800 would eventually be resettled in the United States after a 5-year-long journey.


For this incredible story "God Grew Tired of Us" won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival in 2006. To this day it remains one of the most poignant documentaries about immigration.
