About Tommy

What price would you pay for peace?

Could you tell a soldier not to fight? Even when he's staring down the barrel of gun?

When Tommy joins the Danish army, he is looking for a way to make a difference. Posted to Bosnia as part of the UN's peace-keeping mission during the early 90s, he struggles to understand the violence around him. When he and his comrades find themselves in the firing line, Tommy begins to fight back.

About Tommy tells the absurd and tragic story of a young soldier trying to preserve his humanity against all the odds. Based on real accounts of the recent war in the former Yugoslavia, it is a wonderfully irreverent exploration of how far we will go to make peace - when everyone else is determined to do the opposite.
