Synopsis

Armed only with cameras, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning conflict Journalist Mike Boettcher, and his son, Carlos, provide access into the longest war in U.S. history. Mike and Carlos embed with U.S. Forces fighting on the front lines in Afghanistan, amidst the constant threat of the Taliban. They are the only father and son journalist team to ever embed with the US Frontline Armed Forces due to the extreme danger involved. Their journey is a true story of survival not only for the soldiers, but for a father and son team who seek to re-connect under the most harrowing of circumstances.
