A Child's Century of War is a feature length documentary that takes the viewer on a journey through war from the perspective of children. It is an examination of the way modern war has changed and increasingly victimized children. Three contemporary wars are the heart of the film. Orphans of two Chechen wars, children growing up on the most dangerous street in the West Bank and children abducted by the rebel forces in Sierra Leone tell their stories. Diaries and voices of children from the past provide an eerie parallel of history. Narrated by Christopher Plummer.
