The film is the true story of a small unit of soldiers who were positioned on a ridge overlooking the Kajaki dam. A small patrol sets out to disable a Taliban roadblock, and unknowingly maneuvers themselves into a minefield left behind from the Russian invasion in the 1980’s. One of the soldiers sets off a land mine, losing his leg and setting into motion a desperate rescue mission as his comrades come to his aid.
The film had a limited release in November 2014, and was shown at selected Cineworld cinemas around the country. It is out on DVD, Blu-Ray and On-Demand on the 8th June
