The meeting of the Blue and White Nile in Sudan's capital, Khartoum, is referred to as 'the longest kiss in history'. As the Arab Spring was in full bloom, Sudan, straddling between the Middle East and Africa, was about to split in two. The film follows six young Sudanese searching for a place to call 'home' as their journeys take us up and down the Nile, between north and south Sudan, ahead of the south's secession. Facing conflicting identities, youth in north Sudan grapple with a stale dictatorship while others in south Sudan hope to start over—but at what costs? For the first time a film gives a voice to Sudanese youth from different origins, Muslims and Christians. It is an intimate portrait of a complex society that bears witness to its inevitable fragmentation.
