Two years ago only 45 people lived in the once-thriving village of Gorlu in Liberia. 

Civil war emptied entire villages as locals fled into the wilderness to avoid marauding government and rebel forces.

With peace returning, Liberians are beginning to rebuild their lives.

Gorlu's mayor is promising shelter for any native son or daughter from the village. Here we meet some of the plucky characters of Gorlu determined to re-build their homes and lives with mud and guts.
