This is the story of Dut, a Salt Lake Community College alumnus whose childhood in a Kenyon refugee camp and education in the United States led him to create S.O.A.P (Student Orphan Aid Program) International, a non-profit organization that supports students through education who are still in the refugee camps of Africa.

OUT OF NOWHERE follows Dut's travels to Uganda and Kenya in 2012 to meet his brother for the first time and to be reunited with his mother after 20 years apart. This is a story about the power of education and the hopeful desire of one man using his experience to connect and replenish his dreams, his family, his friends, and his country.
