Fleeing civil war in South Sudan, 14 year-old Shamira and her disabled mother seek refuge in Uganda. In this five-year story, she works to become a lawyer to fight for her people, and make the journey back to her homeland- the same journey that nearly killed her.

With Chapter 1 set to release in June 2018, The Bricks will be part of a five-year/five-part docu-series following stories like Shamira's through South Sudan's changing political climate.
