Even with the knowledge that there are some sins too big for even God to forgive, every night my sky is still full of stars; a wonderful song for night. Trained as a human mine detector, a boy soldier in West Africa witnesses and takes part in unspeakable brutality. At 12 his vocal cords are cut to prevent him from screaming and giving away his platoon's presence, should he be blown up.

Awaking after an explosion to find that he's lost his platoon, he traces his steps back through abandoned villages and rotting corpses and through his own memories in search of his comrades. Song for Night is a lyrical, poignant journey through the nightmarish landscape of brutal war.
