With US forces scheduled to withdraw from Afghanistan next year after over a decade at war, this investigative report takes a look at the difficult transition as US Marines hand over the responsibility of safeguarding the country to the Afghan army and police. On a military base in Sangin, inexperienced Afghan security forces have been tasked with taking the lead in keeping Taliban forces at bay; the few American soldiers who remain are meant to act merely as consultants. But the rampant corruption, drug abuse and sexual misconduct among Afghan forces makes hope for a stable Afghanistan following withdrawal seem increasingly unlikely. By showing our soldiers in their own words, this powerful documentary confronts hard truths of what we’ll be leaving behind. In Person: Director Ben Anderson.
