In the midst of one of the world's forgotten conflicts, Madina dreams of a better tomorrow

After ten years of civil war, South Sudan got its independence in 2011. But within Sudan's borders there is still conflict, with the government bombing and starving the people of the Nuba Mountains. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled to refugee camps, or are caught in the crossfire of president Omar al-Bashir`s ruthless campaign against his country's minorities. In the midst of this brutal war zone, eleven year old Madina is dreaming of a better tomorrow for her and her people.
