"In this vital, gripping documentary, co-directors Saeed Taji Farouky and Michael McEvoy tell the story of those left behind" - Total Film

"They have gone where few directors dare to venture" Hollywood Reporter

In Helmand's Gereshk River Valley, where fertile farmland meets the harsh desert, lives Heavy Weapons Company, 3rd Brigade, 215 Corps of the Afghan National Army (ANA). This is one of Afghanistan's most dangerous regions, nicknamed 'bomb alley' by NATO troops. In this remote outpost we find the experienced Captain Jalaluddin and the new recruit, Private Sunnatullah. As we follow the soldiers over the course of their first year fighting without NATO support, they tell the story of the war through Afghan eyes.

This is an intimate film about the human side of combat, told from a previously unseen perspective, that represents the deep personal motivations, desires and struggles of a band of men fighting on the frontline of the 'War on Terror'. 

Followed by a Q&A with Saeed Taji Farouky, co-director of the film.
