Brief Synopsis:
Alerik is a story of a unique teenage boy who after the death of his guardian, when having no another choice, joins the army and immediately is sent to war. The story takes place in a day just before Alerik is recruited as a soldier. In the trenches of the battlefield just as the worst is about to happen a transformation occurs, his imagination mixes with the reality and he becomes a character from his dreams.
