At 14, Komona has lived through horrors that eclipse an adult's worst nightmares. In this mesmerising, otherworldly drama, shot entirely in the Democratic Republic of Congo, comes a story of incredible human resilience. In the rebels' camp, the training is merciless. Komona quickly learns to endure, to fight and above all, to survive. During a battle waged against the government army, only Komona is spared. The rebel chief sees this as a sign and declares she is the new sorceress. She is soon brought to Great Tiger, the supreme leader of all the rebels, who makes her his war witch.
