Plot Summary:

Throughout the world, hundreds of thousands of children are kidnapped by marauding armies and transformed into child-soldiers who help escalate the chaos and madness that has engulfed much of the African continent. Many were already orphaned by years of civil war; they find a new kind of family in the brutal ragtag military gangs that capture them body and soul. Ezra's story is told in a series of flashbacks: Abducted at the age of six and brainwashed by the military, he’s given powerful amphetamine shots that keep him awake for days, destroy his capacity for conscience and wipe out any memory of the bloody events in which he participates. Ten years later the war is over and a teenage Ezra is brought before a Truth and Reconciliation Commission where he is forced to confront the irrevocable horrors of the past.
