A Year Without War is the story of six teenagers from Liberia who were forced to either fight as child soldiers or flee their country’s brutal civil war. After surviving the war, the young ex-combatants have traded their weapons for cameras and soccer balls and train as grassroots peacebuilders. As they re-enter villages after years of trauma and isolation, these young Liberians discover that their future and a lasting peace for their developing nation depends on one final personal battle–the fight to forgive both themselves and the adults who forced them to kill.
