When civil war came to Rose’s Congolese village, she was separated from her five-year-old daughter, Nangabire. Rose managed to escape with nine of her 10 children and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona. More than a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the U.S. where they must come to terms with the past and build a new future. Watch a trailer of the movie.

Pushing the Elephant will air Tuesday, March 29 at 10:00 p.m. on the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens on KCTS 9.
