The inspiring struggle of a former child soldier who has become the international voice of the child victims of war.
Grace Akallo is an unusual symbol of resiliance. Kidnapped by ARS rebels terrorizing northern Uganda, this girl soldier managed, through sheer determination, to escape the spiral of horror. Later, she went to school abroad so that she could talk, from the UN to Washington to countless campuses, about a reality still being lived by thousands of young children. With this inspiring, hopeful film, director Raymonde Provencher adds another chapter to a body of work designed to raise awareness of the fate of war victims, which she began with War Babies, followed by Blue Helmets: Peace and Dishonour.
