Within the past two decades, Congo has seen more than 5 million conflict related deaths that have been perpetuated through multiple regime changes, which led to the wholesale impoverishment of their people. This film examines the conflict, specifically the M23 Rebellion by following the lives of four unique characters-a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor.
