Director’s Statement

A large part of my film career has been dedicated to making films about and for children, with an emphasis on their creativity and imagination. This time around, children are still the focal point, but the perspective is very different. This film concerns the children who are abused and preyed upon to serve as child soldiers in war-torn countries. Wherever in the world they live, these children all have one thing in common: They are at the mercy of adults who exploit them for their own selfish needs, without regard to their basic rights as human beings. These children are treated as throwaway goods. – Co Hoedeman
