An amazing story. Indiewire

At 13 years old, Zahed ran away from home to become one of 100,000 child soldiers for the Iran military during the Iran-Iraq War. Najah, a soldier for Iraq, was captured and spent 17 years in a prison camp in Iran. The two former enemies meet 20 years later in Vancouver at a counseling class and, over time, become friends. They decide to go back to the Middle East, Najah to find his wife and child, and Zahad to visit his sick his father. That's how this heroic true-adventure begins, and you will be gripping your seat to the end. Subtitled.
