About the Screening


No Simple Way Home

As peace in South Sudan hangs in the balance, a mother and her two daughters return home from exile. The mother's mission is to safeguard her late husband's vision while her daughters struggle with what it means to call South Sudan home.


In Dakar West Africa, 4 young apprentice mechanics headed by Mawbé, a disabled person, forge a very strong friendship between them. Despite the difficulties, Mawbé keeps his feet on the ground thanks to the solidarity and sharing spirit of his gang. On a daily basis, he teaches the trade to his loyal gang.

One day, a car accident occurs on Mawbé. The children decide to design a memorable keepsake gift for her. For this, they will have to show solidarity, stay motivated and redouble their creativity despite their lack of financial means.
