Right before working on the film, Rooney took a trip to South Sudan in December and reflected on her experiences in the country.

“I visited some of the nearly one and a half million people who have been forced to flee their homes over the past year as fighting has engulfed large parts of the country. In the small town of Mingkaman on the Nile River we met people who have been forced to flee their homes, leaving behind their possessions, their jobs, and, in many cases, their families,” Rooney shared to Vanity Fair.

She added, “But the people of South Sudan continue to demonstrate a deep pride in their country’s hard-won independence. Despite the decades of war many of them have endured, they continue to carry with them the hope for a better future for themselves and for their children.”
