Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger spent 15 months with a US army platoon in Afghanistan's most dangerous region to record this documentary.

The film, which won the 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, offers an extraordinary record of the fighting, the fear and the fatalities in a way the Oscar-winning Hurt Locker could only dream of. An important historical document, it is also a testament to the harsh realities of life in a war zone.
