14-year-old Komona tells her unborn child the story of her life. How she was abducted by rebels and forced to carry a gun and to kill. How she became a war witch and lived in the rebel camp where she had to face the horrors and violence of war. How she fell in love with the 15-year-old Magician, who has magical powers and with whom she escaped from the camp. How he listened to her, became her friend and decided to marry her. How her life seemed to change for the better, until the war caught up with her again.
Komona realizes that to become happy she will need to return to her village and settle some old scores with the ghosts from her past. A film by Kim Nguyen.
