The Dinka people of southern Sudan have faced famine and the threat of attack from years of civil war in their region. This film recounts the events of one week in the town of Alek where food aid that was desperately needed could not be distributed because there were not enough relief workers to provide the food. For a week, as the food sits on the ground, everyone--the starving Dinkas as well as the well-fed food aid workers--wait for relief. This film challenges us to examine how we respond to countries in crisis.
