The Mark of Cain

Shane and Mark are two young English soldiers recently stationed in Iraq and set the task of guard duty at a holding facility for prisoners of war. Abuse of these prisoners, while not offically condoned, occasionally goes on and blind eyes are turned; however when the popular company commander is killed in a raid by insurgents, the pent-up fear and anger of the recruits spirals out of control. When word leaks out to the public, someone needs to be made the scapegoat. A powerful drama exploring issues of personal and institutional responsibility that won the 'Movies That Matter' award sponsored by Amnesty International.
