Seeking refuge from the Sudanese Civil War, Valentino Achak Deng survives a harrowing 1,000 mile journey through Sudan. All the while, Deng encounters soldiers, armed militias, wild animals, and pestilence. Deng reaches safety, first in Ethiopia and then Kenya, where he endures the cramped, squalid conditions of refugee camps. At last Deng immigrates to the United States, where a different struggle begins.
