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.

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.
