Johnny Mad Dog

Child soldiers and reintegrating them back into society

Johnny Mad Dog

In a story which takes place in modern day Africa, Johnny is a child soldier possessed by the “mad dog” that he dreams about. With his small army, made up of another three teenagers, he attacks, robs and kills anyone who gets in his way. They are children drowning in the Hollywood’s imaginary and disinformation who are playing at war. Laokolé is a 13 year old girl. She is trying to escape with her little brother from her home city, currently occupied by bands of child soldiers. Johnny moves for- forward. Laokolé flees.
