Liz O'Donnell begins her journey in Liberia where she meets with the new President Johnson Sirelaf. Liberia is focused now on hope and opportunity after years of civil war. Liz meets with a former child soldier called Sa James.

Originally interviewed by the Far Away Up Close team four years ago, Sa's telling silence offers a chilling insight into the serious challenges facing those who were directly involved in the civil war.
