Synopsis

War does not only destroy livelihoods and infrastructure, but it also affects the upcoming generations who feel forced to leave school to join the frontlines. 'Let's Play Soldiers' provides an intimate insight into the life of three brothers who can only find a sufficient source of income to support the family by becoming soldiers. The middle brother, sixteen-year-old Nasser, who left school in the sixth grade, is now working between the frontlines and selling fish. Nasser could end up like his older brother, Adham, 21—who also joined the army when he was 16 and now suffers from PTSD and depression. Whereas ten-year-old Ahmed, the younger sibling, looks up to his older brothers and wants to leave school and become a soldier.
