In Sub-Saharan Africa, 14-year-old Komona tells her unborn child the story of how she became a rebel when she was 12. Kidnapped by the rebel army, she was forced to carry a AK 47 and kill. Her only friend was Magician, a 15-year-old boy who wanted to marry her, and, despite the daily horrors of war, they fell in love. But in order to survive, Komona has to return home and make amends with her past as the war rages on around her.
