Abstract

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, a unit of the U.S. Special Forces and CIA paramilitary officers travel to Afghanistan to topple the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The Americans align with a local warlord on their march, by horseback, toward Mazar-i-Sharif. The film portrays the success of their classified mission but does not engage in its aftermath - the War in Afghanistan, the longest running American war, the failure of American military and diplomatic power in quelling the War on Terrorism, and the growth of terrorist groups in the larger Middle East region.
