„Children’s Crusade“ is a production about 13-14 year-olds’ risk behaviour, first encounters with tobacco, alcohol and drugs. It is based on documentary research by Saar Poll: sociologists questioned youngsters who come from problematic families, who have low self-esteem and communication problems.

Young people can be surprisingly wise, therefore we give them the stage to say what they have really said and where we hear what the media is teaching them.
