Throughout the war, these children aren't really feeling anything because they are being drugged, so they don't know what's going on. All they know is to kill. The types of drugs they're taking, are hard core drugs, and when they wake up, he's like, man what just happened? After the war they are free but not really free, because they don't know where their families are, they still have horrible thoughts of killing, and they don't know who they are anymore. Also, they just feel so alone after everything's over.
