Home to the San for thousands of years, the Kalahari Desert has become the focus of a critical human rights disaster. The Stars Know Our Home explores the work of two San leaders who refuse to watch their ancient traditions disappear to make room for tourist attractions and diamond mines. Living in a country that considers the San to be categorized as 'fauna' rather than human beings, Roy Sesana and Jumanda Gakelebone are in a race against time to protect the rights and traditions of one of the world's oldest peoples.
