The project tells the life of former child soldiers after the war. I wanted to find people whose lives the war has affected most strongly. Some of the men have found work and can build their lives and therefore, to be part of society. Men can be a part of society by working in a morgue or landfill. Pathologist Mr. Koroma has wanted to give a chance. They are like his own sons. Some of the men have drifted far from society to build their own society. Money state community locating in landfill. I think men are a metaphor for society as a whole. Ebola was a serious blow to the country, and it took development back to the Stone Age.
