He searches for the lost boys, former child soldiers living in the shadows, to see how sucessful attempts to reintegrate them in soceity have been. He investigates Sierra Leone’s controversial diamond mining industry and the role and actions of foreign companies in the country and asks what he believes is the most important question in African politics, is there is still blood on the stone?
