Somewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa, Komona a 14-year-old girl tells her unborn child growing inside her the story of her life since she has been at war. Everything started when she was abducted by the rebel army at the age of 12.

It has a very moving story, even if the acting is only okay and the main character is rather dull and not the most likable of protagonists. I like the writing and the character development, but while the actress who plays Komona has been praised, I found her performance lacking. It's good, but not great, and I'll be really surprised if this one takes the Oscar for best foreign language film (which interestingly is based on a real story from Burma, but set in Africa, and is actually a Canadian film).
