The Boys of Abu Ghraib

War thriller from actor Luke Moran (making his directorial debut), telling the true story of an American soldier who secretly befriends an Iraqi detainee, and witnesses the torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib prison, Iraq.

Jack Farmer (Moran) is tasked with guarding the Army's highest priority detainees. Pressured by his superior (Sean Astin) into using harsh techniques on a seemingly innocent detainee (Omid Abtahi), the seductive allure of war quickly turns to a haunting reality that threatens to break him.

For a film about the hardened soldiers who oversaw the most notorious detainment center of the Iraq War, [this] is remarkably squeamish about tackling its subject matter head-on.
