Carrie Davis: Who do you have to screw around here to see an immigration officer?
Dan Reed: Me!
Nick: What are you doing?

Title Card: In 1983, a brutal civil war broke out in Sudan between the North and the South over religion and resources, leaving villages destroyed by northern government armies and militia.
Title Card: By 1987, thousands of orphaned children began to flee on foot across sub-Saharan Africa, walking as many as thousands of miles to Ethiopia and then Kenya. Thirteen years later, 3600 refugees would be relocated to the U.S.A. They were known simply as "The Lost Boys of Sudan."
Title Card: This film is inspired by their story.
Aid Worker: Step up, please.
Refugee: Don't forget us in America.
Abital: Now we can finally find out what this means.
Mamere: [narrating] This is the story of my brothers and sisters. When we were little we did not know many things. We did not know the world was big, or that it was different from us. We only knew our villages in Sudan, which have been there for thousands of years. I should say Southern Sudan, for we were soon to learn that was an important distinction.
Young Jeremiah: Some of these people have no color.
Young Mamere: Because they are born without skin.
