But he know there is a war going on which is causing a lot of difficult thoughts and feelings. In eye level we experience how the absence of a father feels like for a 14-15 year old boy. A boy that loves shooting and war games – like many other boys. But who hates the thought of war in reality. The longer dad is away, the more Oliver disappears into a world of his own.
