Summary: Seen through the eyes of five teenage leaders of the Children's Peace Movement, this powerful film takes us on a journey of hope through Colombia's landscape of terror. In May 1999, Dilia, Juan, Farlis, Wilfrido, and Mayerly, of the Children's Movement for Peace in Colombia, presented a message at The Hague Appeal for Peace Congress. Soldiers of Peace tells the extraordinary story of how these young people risked their lives to vote for peace. At great risk to their personal safety, they petitioned for a national special election in which children could vote on the future of their country and themselves. This documentary is supported by a valuable web-site for teachers and students at www.turnerlearning.com/cnn/soldiers
