Directed by Kenneth A. Carlson

United States | 1 hr 25 min | 2016

One Doctor. One Hospital. One Million Patients. Welcome to the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Against impossible odds, Dr. Tom Catena (Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People; 2016 Aurora Prize Finalist) struggles to heal a forgotten people, as they are bombed relentlessly by indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir. Two things remain constant: Dr. Tom’s courage and his enduring love for the Nuba people.
