In the summer of 1966 a group of 65 idealistic Peace
Corps volunteers headed for Africa and landed in the dusty, heat-scorched
desert of Niger.
We stayed for two years working in agriculture, digging
wells and starting health clinics for women and their babies.
In 2008 five of us returned to Niger to revisit the
country, see our old friends and witness how our work has improved
the lives of the people there.
The documentary also explores the culture shock of
re-entry into the U.S. in the turmoil of 1968 and how our experience
in Africa influenced our future work.
This is our collective story.
