This film follows the soldiers in an Afghan national battalion as they live and fight amidst confusion in what seems like a futile environment.
This isn't about politics, religion, or action and melodrama. It is about the people fighting for what remains of their country. We see on the news chaotic scenes of gun fire in the middle east and its easy to forget that there are people behind those guns with family and friends.
After watching this film, I'm left wondering that if the same documentary could be made in the Taliban camp; would it really be that much different. In my opinion that's what makes this film powerful; strip away all the ideology and hate, and what's left is the same stuff me and you are made of.
