Abby and Kyalu were abducted by a rebel group in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2008. Abby was forced to do hard labor for the rebels. Kyalu, his wife, was raped, and had a child as a result. Once Abby was able to escape from the rebel group, he expelled Kyalu from their home.
The film tells their journey of recovery as part of an initiative called Living Peace, currently led by Living Peace Institute, a member of the Promundo Global Consortium. This is the story they wanted to tell.
This event is part of the Geneva Peace Week.
