The Road Home tells the story of Benny Wenda, the leader of West Papua’s struggle for independence against Indonesia. Ranging from his modest childhood in the remote mountains of New Guinea, to his life in political exile in the United Kingdom, Benny Wenda’s life is extraordinary. Defending his people, Benny is imprisoned by the Indonesians in 2002. He suffered torture and racism on a daily basis. After a daring escape, he crossed the jungle on foot to reach the safety of neighbouring Papua New Guinea. This is just the start of a long journey. Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, he testifies to the world about what happened to his country.
