Girl Soldier is a hard hitting drama and sharp protest against the use of children in armed conflict.
In The dead of night, a merciless band of armed rebels emerged from the jungle to raid St Mary’s Boarding School for Girls. The rebels abduct 139 girls, summoning all her courage and faith, Sister Caroline, a teacher and school nun, tracks the savages back to their jungle camp to demand the girls’ release. Impressed by the nuns bravery, the rebel commander releases 109 of the girls, but keeps 30 to present as gifts to his leader. Over the next few years the captured girls are beaten, raped and forced to commit horrific murders while sister Caroline desperately works to rally parents, the government, The United Nations and even the Pope to aid in rescuing not only her own girls, but the thousands of other children in rebel captivity.
Based on a true story these child abduction continue until this day.
