With war raging around her, 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. With no money and no food, both choices seemed impossible. Rainbow Town is the staggering true story of Feeta Naimen and the children who call her Mother. Fueled by an original soundtrack by the children and narrated by Ma Feeta, three of the children, and Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, this documentary unearths the price of war, while illustrating the strength of the human spirit. Major problems constantly face Rainbow Town, but clinging to faith and each other, Ma Feeta and her children must find a way to overcome.
