This quietly devastating study of the high price of revenge is set in the central African republic of Chad where a bloody civil war raged for decades. When the government declares an amnesty for war criminals, the grandfather of 16-year-old Atim demands that he leave his village to seek out the killer of his father and take his life in turn. But when Atim finds the older man, Nassara, he has turned his back on violence and runs a small bakery. Nassara takes Atim on as an apprentice, unaware of his identity and his mission.
This thought-provoking film subtly yet powerfully conveys not just family tension, but the stress of living in a war-torn nation.
