Storyline

Sixteen years after rebels abducted him as a child, Opono Opondo returns home to Uganda as an adult war commander. Now he has to re-adapt to civil society. Opono grew up to become a war commander in the Lord's Resistance Army of Joseph Kony. Now, Opono must fight for acceptance back home, in a place where he doesn't know the codes and conventions and where the neighbors fear him. The film shows Opono's fight for his future, while struggling to come to terms with his past and to reconcile with his family. While Opono pursues a new career as a carpenter - he opens a shop and designs business cards - he attempts to reconnect with the people closest to him: his brother, his uncle and his best friend who used to be in the LRA with him. A day trip to visit his mom painfully exposes how the scars of war also continue to divide them. One day Opono's former comrade, LRA top commander Dominic Ongwen, is captured and taken to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Ongwen is charged with ... Written by Maartje Wegdam

Man comes back from war in the jungle of Uganda and struggles with his re-socialization process. Interesting portrait on both the main character and Uganda as a country.
8 May 2017 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Very interesting documentary. From the start till the end you feel you're in Afrika, slightly getting to know a man who reveals his dark past to you, struggling to find his place in society. This film forced me to reflect on life. Touching, moving, never sentimental. Just excellent!
