In the country of Sudan in the 1990’s, after civil war destroyed their villages, an exodus of boys walked 800 miles across Africa until making it to refugee camps in Kenya, where they lived on a bowl of grain a day for 10 years. In 2001, the U.S. resettled 3,600 of these “lost boys” in cities across America. 'Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods' tells the story of the recently divorced Christine, who meets Gabriel, a former “lost boy” working in the produce section of Whole Foods. Moved by his story, she offers to help, soon inviting him to live with her and Alex, her teenage daughter. Gabriel’s world becomes enmeshed with his American hosts - leading to an unexpected journey of awareness, struggle and hopefulness - and what can happen when we open ourselves up to help another human being.
