At an airshow where the predominantly male audience have come to watch the most powerful fighter jets in the world; this boy is absorbed in his own fledgling acts of violence.

When recent research indicates that children who play with toy guns become violent adults, what does the future hold for this discontented boy?Screenings & Comment
