"One of the most controversial international stories of last decade of XX century was made alive in this provocative movie that while searching for hidden truth about mysterious syndrome of Gulf War on fascinating way shows what did more than 100.000 brave U.S soldiers get for their loyalty to their country.

Chris Small (Matt Keeslar) is a model soldier who went through finest training, but nothing could prepare him for the horrors of "Desert Storm" action. Fiery clouds on the horizon, deterrent alarms, decomposing body of dead fellow soldiers are some of the memories he brought home to Memphis, where he was gratefully welcomed by his friends and family. Despite his return, he is not happy because he came back sick and changed. Movie is about struggle of his family and some other people to find out and show the truth to the nation.

This excellent movie reveals hidden facts of that big military operation, concentrating on important and cover-up story about real causes of health issues of large number of U.S. Gulf War veterans. Producer Rod Holcomb took this itchy and hard subject and transfered it to the screen, giving amazingly detailed answers to questions many wouldn't dare to ask. Excellent rolls of Ted Danson, Jeniffer Jason Leigh and Matt Keeslar, who did a great job featuring proud u.s. soldier. " *movie description by Croatian RTL, translated by me
