      The Democratic Republic of the Congo (Congo) has experienced a sadistic and murderous legacy at the hands of the rich and powerful for over years. The perpetrators have changed over time but the crimes continue, and have a direct causal relationship to its current political and social agony. The sitting president, Joseph Kabila, won’t go. Risto Mahuno's agony is what happens to his sweetheart Néné, to his cousin, and to himself. In the east of the Congo, where the border with Rwanda is also the border between life and death, the boys are abducted and forced to become soldiers, the girls too much happens for year-old children.
