Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars (#2002)
If the refugee is today's tragic icon of a war-torn world, then Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars represent a real-life story of survival and hope. The six-member Refugee All Stars came together in Guinea after civil war forced them from their native Sierra Leone. Traumatized by physical injuries and the brutal loss of family and community, they fight back with the only means they have -- music. [86 minutes]
