Inspired by real events and the ever-emerging realities of an on-going war, Redacted explores the consequences of placing a group of young American soldiers into a morally ambiguous universe. Pushed to their very limits, the film portrays the tragic events surrounding a US army squad that targets and persecutes an innocent Iraqi girl and her family, culminating in a brutal rape and murder. The film addresses the innocent casualties of war and reveals the general helplessness surrounding the war in Iraq. A fictional version of the truth, Redacted forces the viewer to question the filters through which we see and accept events in our world. Ultimately, Redacted begs the question: Once we know the truth, what is the value of war and the worth of all its tragedies?
