A.I. Josh, T-Mac Sam and K-Gar Ollie all meet in the worst way: fleeing the horrors of war. And as they team up on a perilous journey to a refugee camp, they exchange heroic survival stories, song and even laughter. Thus begins an extraordinary passage that eventually takes three boys of the Dinka tribe to, of all places – Fargo, ND. Where encountering drought, crocodiles and guerrillas is replaced with malls, video games and Skittles. If you can’t imagine being a continent, a culture and a language away from home, join three boys who couldn’t either – at first.

“Carter’s play builds layer upon layer of meaning through evocative language, humor and telling details that create a world that is simultaneously dreamlike and concrete.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
