Synopsis

Komona, a 14-year-old girl, tells the child growing inside her the story of her life from the time she was forced into the war. It all started at age 12, when she was abducted. For the next two years, she fought using a Kalashnikov assault rifle in an army of rebel warriors. The only one who helped her and listened to her was a 15-year-old boy named The Magician, who wants to marry her. Over the months together, Komona and The Magician fall in love with each other.

Just as they believe they're finally free from the grip of war, fate intervenes and in order to survive, Komona will have to right the wrongs of her past.
