God’s Necklace is the story of two Nuer Women in South Sudan flee Juba after President Kiir’s armed guard began killing Nuer civilians door-to-door in Juba, December 2013. In Kakuma Refugee camp they are chosen for resettlement in San Diego, California. However, they struggle with culture shock, but also over how to present their traditional Nuer female marriage to their LGBTQ+ American volunteer, Roberta. With the help of Roberta, a chainsaw-wielding arborist from Alpine, the women learn the preciousness of love, friendship, and culture. But choosing which culture to live, Nuer or American, may tear them apart.
