Since the precipitous retreat of the U.S. forces from Afghanistan in 2021 and the subsequent power takeover by the Taliban, the Afghans who helped the Allies are being hunted down and killed. “MORE THAN BROTHERS” portrays the personal sacrifices and political engagement of two Green Berets in a race against time to save the Afghans who kept them safe during their deployments, giving voice to their Afghan allies whose lives have been completely uprooted since the chaotic withdrawal. This short documentary highlights the human cost of political decisions.
