Summary: November 19, 2005, Haditha, Iraq: Iraqi insurgents bomb a convoy of US Marines, resulting in the death of their most popular officer. His young, enraged Marine buddies carry out a brutal retaliation. Their violent house search leads to the massacre of 24 people, many of whom are women and children--tragic causalities of a war they cannot control. The Marines, too, are victims, attacked, wounded, and forced to respond in the way they have been trained. But when events occur at great speed and under extreme stress, can Marines in the line of fire be accused of murder? (HanWay Films)
