GER is a biographical documentary about Ger Duany, a Sudanese/ American living in New York who returns to South Sudan after 18 years of separation to search for his family. Over five years we follow Ger’s journey, as he celebrates the independence of the new South Sudan, is devastated as the country falls back into war and the frustration as he resettles his family into Kakuma Refugee Camp. It is the story of strength, resilience and family yet full of love, tenderness and hope.
