The Past is the Key to the Future.
Director: Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire tells the story of vicious child soldiers in Liberia armed with weapons of death and willing to use them at the slightest provocation serves as the focal point for this drama highlighting the need for greater humanity in a country ravaged by absurd wars. Johnny is a fifteen year old soldier with a small commando unit, and together this team robs, pillages, and kills everyone and everything in their path. Laokolé is a sixteen year old girl who spirits her disabled father around on a ramshackle wheelbarrow and looks after her eight year old brother Fofo while dreaming of ways to leave the city and build a better future. As Johnny advances and Laokolé falls back, miniature warlords leading diminutive armies kill each other over such trivialities as misplaced words or television sets. What will it take to ensure that no more childhoods are cut tragically short? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi ~
I strongly believe that the past is the answer to the future. When we are able to solve the mysteries of the past we are able to prevent history from repeating itself into the future. No doubt in my mind that the Liberian Civil war was brutal and one of the longest civil war in West Africa but if we are willing and able to learn from our past mistakes and if we are able to recognize where we went wrong and if we are able to recognize humanities needs then we will be able to have a better future. Liberia will Rise Again!!!
