A group of Congolese FDLR (Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda) militiamen have decided to renounce violence, surrender their weapons and enter a reintegration program of the United Nations. Happy to leave behind the troubled mountains of North Kivu, they take a helicopter to City of Goma, where a new life is about to begin.

Eine Gruppe von kongolesischen FDLR (Demokratische Kräfte zur Befreiung Ruandas) Milizen entschloss sich, der Gewalt abzuschwören, ihre Waffen abzugeben und an einem Reintegrationsprogramm der Vereinten Nationen teilzunehmen. Glücklich darüber, dass sie die Unruhen in den Bergen von Nord-Kivu hinter sich lassen, besteigen sie einen Hubschrauber nach Goma, wo ein neues Leben beginnen soll.
