Seattle, Washington- Journey to Jamaa is an award winning film that chronicles the incredible journey of two orphaned children, Margaret and Derick, who are forced to walk through dangerous and life-threatening situations in order to find their only remaining family. In a true story produced by the humanitarian organization World Vision, and shot on location in Uganda, director Michael Landon Jr. delivers a poignant and inspiring film in which a mother’s dying wish sets her two children on the seemingly impossible journey to find a relative they don't even know.
