At nine years old, Dominic Ongwen was abducted by the LRA, a Ugandan rebel group who forced him to kill. Charged with war crimes, he was tried by the International Criminal Court in 2016. In this powerful film that interrogates the justice system, the filmmakers follow Dominic’s lawyer Krispus Ayena during hearings and as he prepares his defence of the former child soldier.
