What it's about: In a small Central African village, boyhood friends Djimi and Koni have come of age under a post-colonial government that levies crippling taxes and legally robs local farmers of their meager crops.

"We fight in one world so we can live in another," declares Koni as the two battle shoulder to shoulder against government troops.

As the rebels move closer to victory, the two friends move closer to a clash of their own.
