A gripping and funny coming-of-age story… in a civil war.
Dancing in a nightclub, Eddy finds himself being asked “where are you from?” This eternal question resounds with many others “Were you there then…?” “Which ‘side’ did you belong to?” and, always quietly present, “Are you a victim or a killer?”
