What primarily was intended as a Dutch military mission contributing to the reconstruction of Afghanistan resulted in June 2007 in a heavy fighting between the Taliban and Dutch troops around the town of Chora in Uruzgan. According to reports dozens of Afghan civilians were killed and injured by Dutch artillery fire. In this documentary Dutch journalist Sinan Can investigates what exactly happened.

Five years later, Can returned to that fatal night with new witnesses and made a follow-up documentary ‘Betrayal of Chora’.
