The Little Soldier is about a five-year-old boy who, through the illusion of silver screen, gets to know his father who had perished in the Great Patriotic War. Aitmatov describes in his beautiful, poetic language the mentality and the atmosphere of a community of shepherds living in a small village. A touching and moving story, short and concise, but full of insight and depth.
