Achol was tall and attractive, and by the time we initially found her she had been raped and abused over 200 times. Now out of the army, she wanted to marry, but the region knew of her history and kept her at a distance.
Along the way, we're constantly reminded of the film's blatant focus -- arrest the Kony monster, save the children. No subtlety here. Jason Russell's own cute four-year-old son Gavin co-stars with his father. The kid doesn't advance the story himself, he's simply a powerful device to pull at every heartstring in every viewer.
Stopping Kony is no longer as important as properly dealing with his tragic legacy. The ultimate way we deal with Joseph Kony is by transforming the tortured souls he left behind. Capturing him won't do that. Making the world aware of him likely won't either. In the end, it's up to you.
Watching the Kony 2012 video leaves you with the wrong impression. We now know that Kony only has a few hundred troops at most, that most of the child soldiers are no longer with him, and that international forces are taking the lead in discovering Kony's whereabouts.
