During the Second Sudanese Civil War, thousands upon thousands of children are left orphaned - many who are moved to refugee camps and come to be known as the Lost Boys of Sudan. Soon, American aid workers join the orphans in their country, hoping to bring some kids over to the States to lead better lives. When four young men discover that they have been selected for the program, they are ecstatic, though they know nothing of the culture they are about to taste. They are taken care of by a tough-talking American woman who lives alone and hopes to integrate them into Western life, but she is touched when one of the boys explains that his sister remains back in Sudan and he has no-one else in the world. She embarks on a struggle to reunite the siblings, but with immigration services suspending the program following the 9/11 attacks, her success is looking limited.
'The Good Lie' is a heart-wrenching drama based on the true story of the horrific warfare in Sudan. It has been directed by Philippe Falardeau ('Monsieur Lazhar', 'It's Not Me, I Swear!', 'Congorama') and written by Primetime Emmy nominee Margaret Nagle ('Warm Springs', 'Side Order of Life', 'The Eastmans'), and it is due to hit movie theaters on October 3rd 2014.
