Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘Journey to Jamaa’ is an award winning film that chronicles the incredible journey of two real-life orphaned children, Margaret and Derick, who are forced to walk through dangerous and life-threatening situations in order to find their only remaining family. In a true story produced by the humanitarian organization World Vision®, and shot on location in Uganda, director Michael Landon Jr. delivers a poignant and inspiring film in which a mother’s dying wish sets her two children on the seemingly impossible journey to find a relative they don’t even know.

With only their mother’s last wish to guide them, Margaret and Derick push a large and mysterious box through the dangerous streets and highways of Uganda, in a journey that ultimately leads to the discovery of hope, family…and the very heart of God.”
