Birahima, a ten-year-old Guinean orphan, tells the story with the help of four dictionaries and a lot of irony of how he is thrown into the tribal war when he tries to join his aunt in Liberia. Yacouba, a scoundrel who accompanies him, convinces him to become a child soldier, while he establishes himself as a grigriman among the combatants. In the midst of chaos, torn between the many enemy factions, Birahima grows up fast and learns to distrust the stories he is told.
