Difficile à dire est le témoignage d'un ex-enfant soldat forcé de participer à la guerre civile en Angola à l'âge de 15 ans. Le film permet de voir la lutte interne et la tentative de dépasser le trauma de la guerre grâce à une immense force de volonté.
Hard to say is the confession of Manuel, a 28-year-old male from Angola who was kidnapped and forced into war when he was only 15, then got engaged into the Special Forces.
The documentary shows the fight of a man to overcome the demons of the past and the PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) associated to the war. It is above all a tribute to the incredible strength of will of a man and his attempts to recover the reins of his life and integrate the civil society.
