Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
When you’ve been to hell and back, how do you shake the memories? This question has haunted General Roméo Dallaire since 1994, when he was UN Force Commander during the Rwandan genocide. Dallaire has now found a reason to live: he's on a mission to end the use of child soldiers. The film, produced in association with Knowledge, follows Dallaire to some of the conflict frontlines of Africa - in the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan - as he meets with recently demobilized child soldiers and their commanders, one soldier to another. Will Dallaire succeed where others have failed? Or will he once again be forced to look on as the world turns away?
