Stronghearted

Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army kidnapped Evelyn Amony when she was just 12 years old. Kony raped her, and took her as one of his wives. Eventually, Evelyn escaped. Stronghearted tells the first pivotal part of Evelyn’s story as she remembers it years later: the moment she comes face to face with Kony himself. The child regards this man—her kidnapper, her abuser. Facing impossible circumstances, Evelyn begins to wonder: Could he hold the key to her survival?
