The story behind it is quite simple. Why on earth were young Americans fighting a war that a). was never winnable and b). against a percieved enemy that posed no strategical threat to the USA. The dvd also exposes the harsh realities of the brutality of war and the way in which humanity is often relegated to the sewer.
