Sixteen

Jumah is going to turn 16 and is in need of a new beginning. Burdened with the black legacy of yesteryear at the Congo as a young child soldier , he lives with his adoptive mother in west London, where he also fights to keep a lid. 1 night, enjoying a rare carefree day out with a brand new friend, Jumah witnesses something which brings him apparently inescapably to his old techniques. He is set to get out who he wishes to be as he and others around him begin to question whether he can stop being a soldier.
