Armadillo is an active military base, used to support tactical operations in Helmand, Afghanistan. It houses a mixture of 170 Danish and British soldiers in the ISAF (International Security Assistance Force), who are responsible for providing security to the surrounding area and eliminating any Taliban insurgency. Following a group of Danish soldiers stationed at Armadillo through an entire tour of duty, filmmaker Janus Metz creates an portrait of the reality of military life on the front lines—with unprecedented access to the soldiers both in the camp and in the field. Documenting both the boredom and horror of warfare, Metz shows us the soldiers playing video games and laughing at pornography, struggling to communicate with unhappy civilians, and brutally killing a group of Taliban soldiers who are found hiding in a trench. The film avoids judgments for or against the war, and instead shows the soldiers struggling to maintain their humanity in a world filled with violence.
