The Good Lie


They were known simply as “The Lost Boys.” Orphaned by the brutal civil war in Sudan, which began in 1983, these young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety.  Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3,600 lost boys, as well as girls, to the West. The Good Lie brings the story of their survival and triumph to life.

Damaris provided a video feature and Discussion Guide.

This video explores the nature of community, which can extend beyond individual families to the global family of humanity.

The Discussion Guide provides all you need to put on an event around the film (for a few friends or a large group) and contains background information and a variety of discussion questions.
