A political thriller shot through with mad humour that sweeps from refugee camps to mountainous tribal regions to the corridors of power in Washington DC. 1981. As the Soviet army burns its way through Afghanistan and toward the critical Pakistani border, CIA operative Jim Warnock is sent to try and halt its bloody progress. Joining forces with a larger than life Afghan warlord, and with the Pakistani and British secret services, Jim spearheads the covert struggle. The ferociously dedicated group of men are tied together by a common enemy but, as the brutal chaos escalates, clear political action becomes impossible in the face of mutual suspicion and shifting loyalties.Performers Lloyd Owen (Jim Warnock), Philip Arditti (Saeed), Danny Ashok (Military Clerk), Nick Barber (CIA Analyst), Demosthenes Chrysan (Abdullah), Kammy Darweish (Mujahideen), Ian Drysdale (Administrative Aide), Craige Els (A Soldier), Robert Gilbert (Mujahideen), Mark Healy (Political Speechwriter), Adam James (Simon Craig), Simon Kunz (Walter Barnes), Gerald Kyd (Walter Barnes), Katie Lightfoot (Ensemble), Matthew Marsh (Gromov), James Warnock (Lloyd Owen), Jessica Regan (Staffer), Nabil Stuart (Mujahideen).
