Summary Chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley, focusing on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats
