Still dealing with the death of his wife, Eduard is a chef from the Netherlands who has come to Africa to open a restaurant with his young son Thomas. Thomas soon strikes up a friendship with Abu, a boy whose father works alongside Eduard at the eatery and life seems happy. However, in a nearby country, war has broken out and one of the leaders of a rebel faction is filling the ranks of his army with stolen children. One night, Abu, along with a dozen other children from his village, is kidnapped by rebels. Thomas is inconsolable when he finds his best friend gone and urges his father to find him. Eduard’s about to discover the harsh reality of the suffering tortures Abu and the other children have been enduring as young foot-soldiers. Based on the true stories of children from War Child projects, The Silent Army stars both actors and real-life child soldiers in the depiction of this outrageous human-rights violation.
