Summary: In Liberia, thousands of children are forced to fight as soldiers in a civil war that has been raging since 1989. This docudrama profiles 13-year-old Mike who, when driven by the militia to join the army, tries to slip away after one bloody assault. But boy soldiers who have escaped are often rejected by their relatives because they have ‘blood on their hands’. Until peace returns, he will have to fend for himself.
