Four Sudanese children are orphaned after their village is massacred in the Second Sudanese Civil War. Consequently, they make an arduous and dangerous trek through the plains, enduring hardship, death and sacrifice until they reach safety in a refugee camp in Kenya. Years later, they are among 3600 selected for resettlement in America; the one girl is sent to Boston, while the three boys must make a new life in Kansas City. These young men must adjust to an alien culture even as the emotional baggage of their past haunts them. However, they and their new friends such as employment counselor Carrie Davis (Reese Witherspoon), strive to understand each other, as they make peace with their history and future in a challenge that will change all their lives.
