The only American prisoner of the Afghan war, army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban for over 5 years. Tortured & humiliated in captivity, his most difficult battle began when he returned to the US. Vilified by sections of the media & Donald Trump, who was then running for office, Bergdahl was labelled as a traitor and deserter. Film-maker Sean Langan was also held captive for 4 months by the same group that captured Bowe Bergdahl. Connected to Bowe by the horrors of captivity, Langan presents a moving story about a soldier who made a mistake but more than paid the price for it.
