Not Rated | | Drama, War
A drama based on the experiences of Agu, a child soldier fighting in the civil war of an unnamed African country.

When the first Two I-C is killed, presumably on Commandant's orders, Commandant needs to delegate a new deputy leader and chooses Preacher. This is why Preacher's decision to leave carries such weight, and why he later opts to return to the bush.
