Synopsis

The Patrol is the first British feature film to look at the conflict in Afghanistan. It won the Jury prize for "Film of the Festival" at the Raindance Festival in London this year. Set in Helmand Province, it follows an overextended British army patrol as they struggle to keep it together under increasingly tough conditions. The patrol is sent to protect an Afghan town against the Taliban. But with their forces stretched, tensions arise... Should Britain have gone in to Afghanistan in 2006? Were we there as 'part of a reconstruction effort'? The Patrol does not set out to judge the Army, rather the purpose of the mission.
