Synopsis

New Year’s Eve 1999. In a remote northern Ugandan village, two girls – one, a local villager and the other, the daughter of American missionaries – sneak into the local church to hold a makeshift wedding for themselves. When their idyllic reverie is interrupted by a boy soldier fleeing the atrocities of war, the girls are thrust into a chain of events will change their lives forever.
