For the last 20 years, northern Uganda has been at war with a rebel force, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). In this war zone, children are not only the victims of the rebels–they are the rebels. The LRA employs a horrifically effective process to fill its ranks–abducting children.
War/Dance follows the historic journey of three of these children–Dominic, Rose, and Nancy–and their school in the Patongo refugee camp, the first school from the northern war zone to make it to the finals of Uganda’s national music and dance competition.
