After a surprise attack, they become separated from their unit and find themselves trapped in an insurgent bunker, surrounded on all sides by the enemy. During their time together, the journalist is able to interview these brave soldiers and uncover who they are, where they come from and their unique personal path they have taken. He finds that in the face of terror, there is still kindness and hope, even in the worst face of humanity.

Very weak script and unconvincing actors
15 July 2017 | by james_ruzickaSee all my reviews

Not sure what the story is supposed to be about. The acting from the first party was very unconvincing. Most of the action is predictable and even the "interviews" don't tell a real story. Doesn't anyone in this army drink water? The uniforms are missing many things, real (looking)body armor, units that keep changing, no one carries ammunition, radios, any military equipment. When there is no story to follow, it is too easy to tear it apart.
