On a rough South London estate the local youths call each other soldiers and see themselves as being in a war – against the police, the world, and other gangs. They think nothing of bullying an effeminate young African asylum-seeker and his mother: easy prey to fill a boring day. But the seemingly defenseless young African has a secret. He knows more about war than they ever will, and once they threaten his mother at gunpoint, they discover who is the real soldier.
