"Utterly fascinating, with a charismatic central figure - love him or loathe him - who is made for the big screen." - Hollywood Reporter

A naked, gun-toting murderer who lead an army that massacred thousands during the Liberian Civil War, Joshua Milton Blahyi (known to his victims as 'General Butt Naked') has now repented. Reinvented as a firebrand evangelist, he now preaches love, forgiveness and tolerance to those he himself once brutalised. But what are the limits of forgiveness for a mass murderer? Is his quest to make amends real, or a way to evade justice?

A recent award winner at Sundance Film Festival, Eric Strauss and Daniele Anastasion's compelling documentary examines both an individual's capacity for redemption and the struggle of a wounded nation to reinvent itself.
