Filmmaker and former British Royal Marine commando James Glancy, who was decorated for his actions in combat, returns to Afghanistan with a small team to help him answer the question that has haunted him for ten years. Was it worth it?

Dramatically, mid-way through filming, President Joe Biden announces that the US will be pulling troops out by 9/11, starting a Taliban offensive that leads to the dramatic fall of the Afghanistan Government, amidst chaotic evacuation scenes in Kabul.

This broad investigation into both Afghanistan's history and its present is able to hint at the influence and issues related to colonial interests. It's a unique insight into day-to-day life, in and away from the country’s many conflicts.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Martin Stalker.
