The thematic dimensions of its hostile locale are gripping, but the heart of the film belongs to a little boy. It is his struggle, and not those over borders and ideologies, that emerges as the most crucial.

The issues in this particular conflict are immensely difficult ones, but, despite the film's flaws, this is quite an inspirational story among all the bad news from that part of the world.
