In Darfur

Saturday, May 13 8pm The Docks Theatre 1119 Providence Street Houston, TX 77002

The story follows an aid worker's mission to save and protect lives, a journalist's pursuit to deliver a "Page One" story and a Darfuri woman's quest for safety. It is a searing story of urgency and international significance."
