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.
