About

The Rescue List | , | | | 81 min

The Rescue List is an immersive documentary that intimately follows the lives of two rescued children living in a rehabilitation shelter in Ghana, as social workers help them recover from a childhood enslaved to fishermen on Lake Volta – the largest manmade lake on Earth. But their story takes an unexpected turn when their rescuer embarks on another rescue mission and asks the children for help. The Rescue List charts the unfolding drama of these rescue operations alongside a moving portrait of the boys’ recoveries as they prepare to return to their families. By doing so, the film tells a touching story of friendship and courage – a story that transcends the trope of victimhood and illustrates what it means to love and to survive.
