Direction: Newton I. Aduaka
In the year 2000, it was alleged that some 300,000 children were serving as soldiers in armed conflicts in more than thirty countries around the world. Nearly 120,000 of these were allegedly engaged in various conflicts on the African continent. EZRA is a factional tale inspired by the Sierra Leonean conflict. It is centered on one event: a drug fueled atrocious attack on a village by rebel soldiers. The jigsaw puzzle of what occurred that night is reconstructed the testimonies of three witnesses: Ezra, an ex-combatant, his sister Onitcha, a mute, and Cynthia, Ezra’s fellow ex-soldier.

What is supposed to be reconciliation soon becomes a trial, as Onitcha chooses this as the arena to reveal a secret she has kept from her brother.
