Overview

"The Rescue List"​ is an immersive documentary that intimately follows the lives of two rescued children living in a rehabilitation shelter in Ghana, as social workers help them recover from a childhood enslaved to fishermen on Lake Volta - the largest manmade lake on Earth. But their story takes an unexpected turn when their rescuer embarks on another rescue mission and asks the children for help. ​"The Rescue List" ​charts the unfolding drama of these rescue operations alongside a moving portrait of the boys’ recoveries as they prepare to return to their families. By doing so, the film tells a touching story of friendship and courage - a story that transcends the trope of victimhood and illustrates what it means to love and to survive.
