Description

From West Point grads to drill sergeants, from Abu Ghraib interrogators to low ranking reservist-mechanics, soldiers in the US Army today reveal their deepest moral concerns about killing in war.  Their message: every soldier wresteles with his conscience over killing.  Although most decide to kill - some refuse.  "Soldiers of Conscience" reveals that far more soldiers decide not to kill than we might expect.  Made with official permission from the US Army and filmed in state-of-the-art high definition video, "Soldiers of Conscience" includes never before seen footage of basic training and the war in Iraq, with an original soundtrack from an Academy Award winner and composer.  "Soldiers of Conscience" is a realistic yet optimistic look at war, peace, and the power of the human conscience.
