Directed by Jason Laypeyre and Robert Wilson, the film features rising stars Gage Munroe (Immortals), Simon Yu (A Beginner’s Guide to Endings) and Mackenzie Munro (The Stone Angel).
I Declare War focuses on a group of 12-year-old friends whilst they play an innocent game of ‘Capture the Flag’ in the neighbourhood woods, arming themselves with nothing more than sticks, their imagination and a simple set of rules.
One afternoon the game takes on a more serious tone and the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship, giving the would-be warriors a glimpse of the darker side of human nature. Will child’s play turn to something more real or will these boys battle it out and win the war?
