Description

A Long Walk to Water is based on two heartbreaking true stories. Nya, a young girl from South Sudan, fetches water from a pond that is two hours walk from her home; she must make this dangerous trek two times a day. A boy, Salva, has become one of the “lost boys” of Sudan, seeking refuge across the African continent as he flees from a war in which he would be either unwilling soldier or victim.

Throughout the story we follow both Salva and Nya through their independent adventures, coming to understand their difficult lives and the circumstances that brought their country to this desparate chaos.

A story of hope, tragedy, and redemption, A Long Walk to Water is a beautiful and heartbreaking glimpse of the Sudanese people and their struggles.
