Aldrig en absolution

Never an Absolution
Synopsis
One day a police officer arrives at a school, investigating a murder. Dijo, 11, orphaned refugee from Congo is identified as a witness. However, he is not simply just a witness.

What the officer, the school and the whole system does not realize, is that in this child, they are facing a former child soldier. A witness, and indeed a participant of tribal massacres and perhaps genocide.
Ultimately, Dijo is a child imprisoned by his horrifying past, desperately yearning for an absolution.

An absolution that has never come...
