"Small Country: An African Childhood" is based on a true story. Gabriel — a young boy born to a French father and Rwandan mother — grows up in the small African country of Burundi. Despite some tension in his family life, Gabriel lives a carefree life — until civil unrest in Rwanda spills over into Burundi. Set in the 1990s, Gabriel experiences a ‘coming of age’ story while in the middle of the bloodshed between the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. Adapted from Gaël Faye’s semi-autobiographical book, Small Country: An African Childhood tells the story of a young boy’s lost innocence.
