OLATHE, Kan. - In the 1980's Sudan was war-torn.  Families were murdered, children turned into soldiers.

Many of those children, if they were lucky, made their way to safety in the United States.

Not only in the United States, but right here in Kansas City, a place that became known as a safe-haven for many of the lost boys and girls of Sudan.

Monday night, some of those lost boys and girls relived the good and the bad in a special premiere of The Good Lie, a movie, basically, about their lives.

The Good Lie comes to theaters on October 3.  If you'd like to find out more about The Good Lie Fund, go to www.thegoodliefund.org.
