…this drama is worth seeing for a remarkable performance by its 10-year old lead actress. After spending the first ten years of her life in a Catholic orphanage, the young and fiery Awet (Victory) excitedly learns that she is soon to be reunited with her family. But her hopes for a normal life are dashed when her father places Awet directly into the military forces’ hands. At first willing to join the fight, she soon realizes that their enemies are just as human as she, and Awet makes a solemn vow never to kill...Labeled a traitor by the group’s commander, the young Awet nevertheless courageously stands by her convictions and fights the violence in the disarming way that only a child could.
