This moving documentary profiling war crimes trials in Sierra Leone puts audiences at the center of both a gripping story and a crucial public debate. Offering a fascinating portrait of former warrior Issa Sesay—accused of heinous crimes, but credited by some with ending Sierra Leone’s civil war—the film profiles the complexities of international law in its pursuit of justice and truth.
