Synopsis

It is estimated that over the last ten years hundreds of thousands of children have fought and died in wars around the world. Some are abducted, some join up out of desperation - all are exploited, abused and made to kill or be killed. Ten-year-old Eritrean refugee Letekidan Micael gives a heart-rending performance as a young "conscript" in 1980s Eritrea in this adaptation of a memoir by a former child soldier. The memoir itself has been called into question, but there is no doubting the authenticity of Micael's experiences - what happens to her on screen is happening to a child somewhere in the world, right now.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
