Synopsis

Drama based on the testimonies of British soldiers who have fought in the Iraq war. Wayne Gulliver (Matthew McNulty) and Mark Tate (Gerard Kearns) - nickname 'Treacle' - are two ordinary 18-year-olds serving in the British Army in Iraq in 2003. Their platoon is struggling to maintain an uneasy peace. When their popular company captain is killed on patrol by a roadside bomb, morale in the platoon hits rock bottom. Acting on orders, they round up several suspects from house-to-house searches. That night feelings at the camp are running high and as the chain of command is weakened and events spiral out of control. The lads end their tour of duty and return to England full of stories, but also shaken by their experiences. Iraq comes back to haunt them when Wayne's jilted girlfriend, Shelley (Naomi Bentley), decides to get her own back on him by giving photos of the events in Iraq to the British police...
