As war raged, she had to make a choice; to protect the orphaned children forced into her life or abandon them and go in search of her own family.
Her name is Ma Feeta and today, she lives with 86 of the children at a rural West African farm called Rainbow Town.
Filmed in the upcountry of Liberia, Rainbow Town welcomes you into their lives, revealing how they survived one of Africa’s bloodiest civil wars and how they cope as a family in its aftermath.
Narrated by Ma Feeta, three of the children – Alice, Taylor, and Faith – and Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf; the story unearths the price of war, while illustrating the strength of the human spirit.
