Dealing with a subject which is not often brought up in our media, this film on child soldiers is set in El Salvador in Central America in a small village.  Both the national government and the rebels are both trying to recruit boys from as young as 12 years old to fight on their site, whilst the families, church and school are trying to prevent this happening.

The film is seen through the eyes of Chava who is coming up to the appropriate age to be taken.  He helps raise money to feed the family so his loss would be particularly detrimental to the family.   The anarchy and brutality of what this young boy has to live through are well presented in this thought provoking film which is characteristic of the unstable nature of small central American countries in the 70's and 80's.
