    Engaged, willing, in the face of horror.

    Central Africa. Nearly 2 million people survive in refugee camps, dependent on international humanitarian aid. The surrounding territories are subjected to the actions of rebels who sow death and destruction in their path. Sammy, a young boy as young as 12, is enlisted in the ferocious militia of child soldiers to commit these atrocities. Florence, a photojournalist for a major Swiss daily, is sent to a Red Cross base to witness the situation. Two characters who have nothing in common, but that fate will unite, through blood and tears.

    Fiction inspired by real events and published with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), this poignant cartoon plunges us into the reality of a deadly conflict. A drama that tells us at the same time the commitment and dilemmas that humanitarians try to face on a daily basis.

    In this album also a dossier on the condition of child soldiers around the world, what international humanitarian law provides for them and what the ICRC does on a daily basis before, during or after the armed conflict to assist them.
