Synopsis

Documentary about the tragic situation in Darfur, as seen through the eyes of former U.S. Marine Captain, Brian Steidle. The film takes the viewer on an emotionally charged journey into the heart of Darfur, where an Arab-run government is systematically executing a plan to rid the province of its black African citizens. As an official military observer, Steidle had access to parts of the country that no journalist could penetrate. He was unprepared for what he would witness and experience, including being fired upon, taken hostage, and being unable to intervene to save the lives of young children. Ultimately frustrated by the inaction of the international community, Steidle resigned and returned to the U.S. to expose the images and stories of lives systematically destroyed.
