REESE Witherspoon stars as a no-nonsense American who helps African refugees adapt to their new life in the States.

Carrie Davis (Witherspoon) is put in charge of finding work for three refugees who were made orphans during a civil war a few years before.

They win a lottery to leave behind the oppression they have been subjected to for far too long, and move to America.

Carrie reluctantly sets about helping the refugees find places to live and work. However, her frosty attitude begins to melt the more she hears more of what refugees have endured and the humanitarian atrocities they have left behind.

When refugee Theo tells Carrie that his sister is stuck there, she embarks on a mission to rescue Abital and to give her a better life than the suffering she has got used to.
