“Arrète la Guerre” is a musical tale in which “Buz”, an old street musician, sings and talking with God asking Him to placate the violence among men. In an unreal forest, two children armed and dressed as real soldiers play “the game” of the War. The kids imitate the cruelty of adults hiding themselves in the wood, ready to kill each other. Suddenly the musical notes of “Buz” wake up a Spirit: the playful Soul that lives in the heart of all street artists. Just in time, the Spirit separates the children and takes them by the hands trough a ghost city bombed by the war. There, among the rubble of the houses devastated by air raids, a horrible view is waiting for the kids…
