1. feb.. 2017
3 274 870 Ganger

As Iraqi forces attempt to retake Mosul from Isis, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad joins their elite Golden Division on the frontline, speaking with civilians, soldiers and Isis suspects. At constant risk from Isis snipers and suicide bombers, can commander Munthadar and his men ever bring peace to Mosul? And if they do, will the exhausted civilian population trust them?

  • Great documentary, but it was hard to watch at times. I had to pause the documentary a couple times to cry after seeing kids that remind me of my younger brothers suffer so much. I have been caught up in thinking my life in America is not great because I don’t have enough money, yet my family is healthy and safe here. I have taken so much for granted when so many people have so little. I wish the best for the people of Iraq.
