Fambul Tok Movie Plot
Victims and perpetrators of Sierra Leone???s brutal civil war come together for the first time in an unprecedented program of tradition-based truth-telling and forgiveness ceremonies. Through reviving their ancient practice of fambul tok (family talk), Sierra Leoneans are building sustainable peace at the grass-roots level ??? succeeding where the international community???s post-conflict efforts failed. Filled with lessons for the West, this film explores the depths of a culture that believes that true justice lies in redemption and healing for individuals ??? and that forgiveness is the surest path to restoring dignity and building strong communities.
