Sierra Leone recently emerged from a 12-year civil war which claimed the lives of thousands and was hallmarked by arbitrary amputations of civilians. Although peace has now come to the country, many of the root causes to the conflict still remain: poverty, corruption, poor sanitation and bad governance. Ishmahil Blagrove, Jr. speaks to the key players in Sierra Leone's future and questions whether or not this peace can really last.
The documentary is a graphic view of Sierra Leone from the inside. It destroys the Western notion of "Blood Diamonds" and exposes how the mineral wealth of this poor West African country is being exploited by foreigners and corrupt politicians.
