Filmmakers D. Sikorski and Douglas Stewart team to examine the mystery surrounding the killing of an Iraqi man whose death at the hands of seven U.S. Marines and one Navy Corpsman raised a number of difficult questions about the complexities of warfare. Though the soldiers claim to have gotten into a gunfight with 52 year old retired Iraqi policeman Hashim Ibrahim Awad after catching him in the process of planting a roadside IED near his home in Hamdania, Iraq, the dead man's neighbors and family claimed that the soldiers had murdered Awad in cold blood for refusing to aid coalition forces in their efforts to root out terrorists in the small Sunni village. As a result, the NCIS launched a full-scale investigation that resulted in a lifetime prison sentence for all of the soldiers involved. With this film, co-directors Sikorski and Stewart aim to offer an unbiased account of the crime and its aftermath while putting the rules of engagement under the microscope so that the mechanics of modern warfare come into sharp focus.
