A moving profile of two heroic men working to do good in a hellish war zone, this is highly recommended." - Video Librarian

"“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Gandhi would have recognized his words in action as portrayed in this poignant documentary of health care workers in war-torn South Sudan... We Are the Ones is a beautifully realized work of art in addition to social statement. The production values are excellent, and the film moves with the elegance of brightly colored native fabric. This documentary would make a wonderful addition to any global health or sociology collections." - Educational Media Reviews
