Plot Summary
Afghanistan has been plagued by war for decades, and its seemingly endless conflicts are the subject of this unflinching documentary, which was made before the 9/11 attacks on America. The film follows Gino Strada, an Italian doctor, and his dedicated team as they bring medical aid to Northern Alliance fighters and attempt to establish a hospital within a city. While the production sheds light on the struggle to rid Afghanistan of the Taliban, it focuses largely on the human cost of war.
