Rebelle, is set in an unnamed African country (it was filmed in the Congo) where armed rebels are fighting government forces.  Rebels kidnap 12 year old Komona from her village and force her to kill her parents. With other children she undergoes training and is given an automatic weapon.  Ghosts of her parents warn her that soldiers are close by, and this knowledge gives her the status of a witch among the rebels.

Komona forms a close bond with a 15 year old boy named Magician and is now 14 and pregnant.  She realises that if she doesn’t want her parents’ ghosts to haunt her baby she must undertake the long journey that will lead her back to her birthplace.
