Every day after school, a group of 13-year-old kids play "war" in a local forest. It's all fun and games until one afternoon when bullies, pre-teen crushes, and popularity contests come into play.
The "warfare" is presented through the lens of their imagination. Weapons are real. Killing is real.
Director Jason Lapeyre: "It's like Stand By Me meets Full Metal Jacket."
I Declare War will world premiere at ActionFest in Asheville, NC this weekend.
