The Good Lie is amazing

5 second plot: This is the story of a group of Sudanese boys and a girl who lost everything when they were kids. Their family was murdered, their houses destroyed and they had to walk an enormous distance to get to a refugee camp. After 13 years they get a chance at a better life in the USA.

5 second review: This movie starts with a tough lesson in (very recent) African history. The horrible things these innocent people have to go through are heartbreaking beyond comprehension. And then you have these kids, taking care of each other, being amazing human beings. It's an incredible story. It gets a little bit lighter when they arrive in the USA and are amazed by everything we take for granted. Like... food.
