The plight of child soldiers in Africa is at the fore in this tale of a Dutch restaurant owner who lives in a small town bordering an African conflict zone. Restauranteur Eduard Zuiderwijk (Marco Borsato) is left to take care of his young son Thomas after his wife tragically dies. But when Thomas' best friend Abu is abducted by a rebel leader to be trained as a child soldier, Eduard goes in pursuit to save the boy to regain his son's respect - but he must infiltrate a training camp that exploits the region's most vulnerable children.
