Broken destinies – In the imaginary city of Prospèreville, the rights of children are respected. However, two megalomaniac generals soon start a war over the exploitation of diamonds. A professor of infantile psychology, who is also advisor to one of the generals, suggests he enlists children because they will be obedient and submissive soldiers. An 18-year-old ex child soldier, who is now irremediably mutilated, tells the story.
