Director Nick Broomfield is well known for his reflexive 'first person' style of documentary making, seen in films such as Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer, but in recent years he has branched out into creating hard-hitting, naturalistic dramas.

Bromfield offers a number of perspectives on events, both Iraqi and American, but draws no easy conclusions.
