"John Bul Dau was born in 1974 and grew up in a traditional cattle-centered farm in Duk County. In 1987 when the Sudanese civil war brought northern soldiers to his village in a nighttime raid, John fled into the bush to save his life, becoming one of the thousands of Lost Boys who fled their homeland to grasp at a chance for survival.
