Description: An intimate portrait of an American family during a turbulent time, this documentary film follows Jake Rademacher in his directorial debut as he sets out to understand the experience, sacrifice, and motivation of his two brothers serving in Iraq. Unprecedented access to U.S. and Iraqi combat units take Jake behind the camouflage curtain with secret reconnaissance troops on the Syrian border; into sniper "hide sites" in the Sunni Triangle; through raging machine gun battles with the Iraqi Army. "Brothers at War" is a rare look at the bonds and service of our soldiers on the frontlines and the profound effects their service has on the loved ones they leave behind.
