Three weeks after the fall

of Baghdad in April 2003,..

...there is a gunfight in the city

of Fallujah between US soldiers...

...and local demonstrators.

15 civilians are killed,

including women and children.

ln the following months,

Fallujah becomes the stronghold...

...of Sunni resisance.

While driving through town

on 31 March 2004, four US...

...mercenaries are shot and hanged

from a bridge over the Euphrates.

Pictures of the charred bodies

are published around the world.

On 4 April, the Americans launch

operation "Vigilant Resolve"...

...whose goal is to arrest the killers

and bring peace to the city.

Come on! Quick!

This way!

Quick, quick!

BAGHDAD, 9 APRlL 2004,

GOOD FRlDAY

- My son, nmy son!

- Quick, quick!

Quick, quick!

My son!

Alain!

Volume deficiency shock... blood!

- Leave!

- Type 0 negative.

Please, leave.

Medi, type 0 negative!

- Mombasa.

- lstanbul.

Probably the spleen, the kidney...

...or the colon.

Tachycardia... damn it!

Come on!

Stop!

lt's useless!

lt's been going on like this for days.

What are you doing here?

ln Fallujah, we have no more

blood units, no medication, nothing.

People die, and we watch.

l thought they weren't letting

anyone in or out.

There's a ceasefire

until 5 a.m. tomorrow.

Until sunrise.

We need supplies.

- By this afternoon?

There was gunfire all night.

We have heavy casualties...

...and not even bandages.

You have to help me, Kim.

How? We'll never get

the papers that fast.

l'll try.

- Will you tell them?

No, my son! My son! No!

Sorry. l'm at a press conference.

What? When?

Right away?

Sure, l'm spontaneous, but...

Where did you get the information?

At the press conference...

A ceasefire? Are you sure?

How'd you find out?

The big road in Al Mansour, right?

Okay, we'll be there.

Ralf?

Ralf?

OUT EATlNG!

Damn it!

l'll try to send it tonight.

Yes, it'll be great. Bye!

lt's good you've eaten. We gotta go.

Did it taste good?

Sit down.

lt's Paolo's farewell party.

- Pull up a chair.

- Thanks. We're driving to Fallujah.

- Fallujah?

- We gotta go.

- You're kidding?

- No. l have everything with me.

Tanzim's driving.

l'll explain later.

Hold on.

He's a Shiite, he drives

to the meeting place.

Fallujah is a war zone.

We're traveling with an aid convoy.

There's a ceasefire.

Nobody knows but us.

Are you coming?

- Where are you going?

- To my room.

For weeks you've been saying,

"No way,..

...too dangerous."

l'm not here to read off a teleprompter...

...what l saw on CNN.

lf you don't want to go,

find another job.

Finished? Then l'll get some

batteries. lt'd be a shame...

...if the camera suddenly stopped.

Aiche.

Alain?

A/ain, we have to go!

Coming!

Everything okay?

Yeah, sure.

Everything's just fine.

Sorry, Ralf.

l didn't mean what l said.

The 4 Americans they burned

in Fallujah probably left Baghdad...

...just like us

and got barbecued in Fallujah.

We're in an aid convoy.

They were from Blackwater.

Who cares!

They'd blow up anything.

lf you aren't for them,

you're against them.

l tell you, l got a bad feeling about

this. lt'd be smarter not to go.

What's the smart thing to do?

Film our daily car bomb?

We'll be the first to enter Fallujah.

lt's our chance!

Our chance for what?

To end this f*cking war?

Listen, l've been doing this

for 20 years now.

You know what we'll get?

A 30- second report.

You know why, 'cause

not a single bastard cares.

All they care about is if we get

our heads shot off.

Then we'd be big news.

The van is loaded.

What's wrong?

l almost beat down your door.
