Summary, etc.: This documentary chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. The focus is on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. This is an experimental film: the cameras never leave the valley, and there are no interviews with generals or diplomats.
