The Liberian civil war had a profound impact on the country's civilian population, resulting in significant loss of life and widespread displacement. Many civilians were forced to abandon their homes and land properties and seek refuge elsewhere. In the years that followed, these properties were occupied by individuals, not only combatants, who were seeking shelter or opportunistic gain. With the cessation of hostilities in 2003, many former property owners attempted to reclaim their land and homes. However, this led to a conflict of ownership, as occupiers resisted these efforts and sought to maintain possession of the properties in question. This film explores the complexity d occupiers. The film captures the emotional toll of the conflict, portraying the despair and frustration experienced by former owners who have lost so much already, as well as the determination of occupiers to hold on to their homes and properties.
