    • Synopsis
    • “I Want To Be A Soldier” is the story of Alex, an average 8 year child who develops a morbid fascination for images portraying violence. He starts to have communication problems with his parents and other children at school and becomes withdrawn, inventing two imaginary friends, Astronaut Captain Harry and his alter ego, Sergeant John Cluster..
      When his mother gives birth to twins, Alex is unable to deal with the situation, feeling lonely now that his parents lavish all their attention on the babies. Hurt and betrayed, he uses emotional blackmail to persuade his father to grant him his dearest wish: a TV set for his bedroom.
      Through Television, Alex discovers an exciting new world... He is fascinated by everything he watches. He becomes obsessed with images of war and violence. Gradually, his wish to become an astronaut, encouraged by his imaginary friend, Captain Harry, is replaced by a desire to become a soldier under the malign influence of his new imaginary friend, Sergeant Cluster, an American soldier who seems to have stepped straight out of a war film.
      In his own imaginary world, Alex becomes a soldier. A child soldier of an imaginary army…
      John Cluster teaches Alex that violence is the answer in ALL situations. A way of life. In times of both war and peace…
