In this in-depth documentary, Academy Award-nominee Don Cheadle ("Hotel Rwanda," "Crash") examines genocide in Sudan's western region and takes a closer look at the consequences of the conflict between the Sudanese government sponsored militia group known as Janjaweed and the various rebel groups that are comprised of mostly civilians. The results are hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of people displaced throughout neighboring countries seeking refuge. With this huge crisis taking place, nations have been slow to aide and assist the suffering civilians, but have been slowly coming to aide. This film is a call to action for people everywhere to help stop the genocide in Darfur, as it follows the struggles and achievements of six very different individuals bring to light the situation in Darfur and illustrate the absolute need to get involved.
