SUNDAY: THE STORY OF A DISPLACED CHILD
Invisible Children's filmmaker Bobby Bailey went back to Northern Uganda in March 2007 to spend 10 days living among and like the people displaced for 10 years in one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. His adventure took him to the heart of the longest running war in Africa and into the life of a child that would change his life forever.
There is hope in Northern Uganda. The prospect of peace is on the horizon and the future is promising. And while there is reason to rejoice, the end of fighting will not bring an end to tragedy. The effects of war are often as tragic as war itself, and a generation that has never known peace will be left to make life out of the wreckage.
Meet Sunday. Only 15 years old, there isn't a part of his life that hasn't been affected by the war. Orphaned at a young age, he lives in a displacement camp and struggles to survive amid the effects of poverty, disease, and malnutrition. With no family left to depend on, he must try and provide for himself.
Without enough time to work and go to class, Sunday can't make the money needed to pay for school fees and is asked to leave class. The war that has already taken so much from him now threatens to take the most valuable thing he has left: a future.
But a life that has been marked by tragedy is defined by resilience, and despite reasons to lose hope, Sunday perseveres. This is the story of faith that overcomes suffering.
