Storyline

A documentary that unveils the moral tensions that tear at soldiers' psyches through the lens of one highly personal story: Private Adam Winfield was a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan when he attempted with the help of his father to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. But Winfield's pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Private Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever.

Not really a good depiction of the subject
24 June 2015 | by SeraphionSee all my reviews

As a documentary, this movie deals with such a subject that is quite strong that can poke into sensitive areas of the social establishment. Yet I find that this movie wasn't that strong in addressing its subject. The approach of more heavier focus on interviews is not that good in telling a heavy and sensitive subject such as thus. The movie would've been far better if it incorporated some degree of dramatization, maybe some kind of reenactment of the three cases of the setup killings. That will definitely put more into focus so that the viewers can really relate to what the movie is talking about. Also the movie should really get more balanced by at least adding more interviews or other parts from the army's side.
