A documentary focusing on the lives of ordinary people after the end of the Angolan Civil War. The thirty-year conflict left Angolans maimed, homeless, orphaned, and sick along with a host of other social costs. These individuals try to rebuild their lives amidst transformations in their country's economy, infrastructure, and political system.
