In 1989, at the age of fourteen, Ricky Richard Anywar is abducted and forced to fight with Joseph Kony's rebel army in Uganda's decades-long civil war.

Twenty years later, Samuel, representative of the thousands of child soldiers Ricky eventually helped rehabilitate as founder of the international charity Friends of Orphans, tells his story.
