Pushing the Elephant - Together at Last

When civil war came to Rose's Congolese village, she was separated from her five-year-old daughter, Nangabire. Rose Mapendo managed to escape with nine of her 10 children and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona. More than a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the U.S. where they must come to terms with the past and build a new future.
