"Inspiring and heart-wrenching...[shows] the power of sport as a unifying force and the importance of folding refugees into the community." Jules Boykoff, Prof, Politics & Government, Pacific U

When he was only 8 years old, Guor Mading Maker (formally known as Guor Marial) ran from captivity in war-torn Sudan to eventually seek safety in the US. In his new life, Maker began running again, participating in high school track and field and eventually becoming a sensation and qualifying for the 2012 Olympics. But because the newly formed South Sudan was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee, Maker had to fight to compete independently, refusing to run for Sudan and taking a stand against its oppression.
