Summary
  • Mohammed is just 10 years old. For most of 1997 he was forced to act as a young fighter with rebel forces in the jungles of Sierra Leone. His duties included carrying heavy equipment, acting as a personal servant to other soldiers and torturing and disciplining any of the other child soldiers who stepped out of line. Eventually he escaped to Guinea, where he is one of thousands lining up to register at the Gueckedou refugee camp. In 1997 Guinea was host to an estimated 430,000 refugees: 190,000 Sierra
  • Leoneans, and 240,000 Liberians who'd escaped the 8-year civil war there. This film evaluates the success of the Guinean government and the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in protecting the rights pledged this huge African refugee population under the OAU Convention
