God's Necklace

Two Nuer women flee the 2013-2018 civil war in South Sudan only to face a new journey of resettlement in California. They struggle with culture shock but also how to present their traditional Nuer woman marriage to their American volunteer, Roberta - a chainsaw-wielding arborist who also dabbles in taxidermy. Also at play are two river spirits and hyenas who make moving on with the living a struggle for the Nuer women when the ghosts of the past remain.
