Komona, a girl in Sub-Saharan Africa, tells the story to her unborn child about her kidnapping by rebels and forced to join their bloody civil war. When she discovers a valuable intuition about the presence of the enemy, she is elevated as a witch and favored by the rebel leader. However, this special status threatens to be short-lived in this world of superstition and senseless brutality even as the ghosts of the war dead haunt her visions. However, when a newfound friend convinces her to desert, Komona finds escaping that brutal life is far from easy with its physical and spiritual consequences following her wherever she goes.

A pregnant older Komona tells the story when as a 12 year old village girl, she gets abducted by rebels and forced to kill her family. She is taken along to fight, and she falls for an older albino child soldier. Together the two walk away from the fight. He's on a quest to find a white rooster which he needs to marry Komona.
This movie starts off with a bang... literally. It goes on with a compelling narrative as she's being forced to fight. However, the escape diffused a lot of the tension in the movie. It loses a lot of the danger. It turns more surreal and rambling. It's as if there is a different movie going on. I think an escape is better as the climax.
