This documentary sheds light about the conflict and post conflict reconstruction in particular in West Africa , discussing issues such as child soldiers and the many damaged victims of war and how they have found support. Missionaries have played a vital role in the restoration and healing process of post war conflict. The documentary is narrated by the infamous former Australian Rock Star Themi Adams, who once toured with the Rolling Stones and who now heads the Orthodox Mission in Sierra Leone. He talks about how his mission in particular is contributing to the recovery process.
