Children of Soldiers
This incisive portrait of the daily lives of children and
teens from four military families reveals the particular circumstances of life
at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa. Every day, each must come to grips with
absence, an uncertain future and the looming perspective of death. In a world
where giving expression to fear or grief is taboo, young and old alike try to
find balance between loyalty to the troops and staying true to themselves.
Shot over the course of an entire troop deployment to Afghanistan, this film
lifts the veil on a reality shared by thousands of young Canadians.
