Of the estimated 25,000 orphans in Sudan, many team up with kids their own age to fight off hunger, disease and attacks by wild animals or rebels. Director Christopher Dillon Quinn accompanies three of them over the course of five years, as they leave Kenya for a new home in the USA. God Grew Tired of Us won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at last year's Sundance Filmfestival.
