Idris then took a serious turn when he thanked everyone who was behind the making of the film, which is about a child soldier fighting in the civil war of an unnamed African country. "We made a film about real people and real lives," he said. "To be awarded for it is very special because a lot of people were damaged through that. Thank you for giving this film some light."
