Inhalt

Ceasefire

Baghdad. The war is officially over, the situation still disastrous. The supply of food and medicine to Fallujah has collapsed. Americans and rebels manage to agree to a 24-hour ceasefire.

Kim, a Dutch worker for an international relief organization, teams up with the young German journalist Oliver, who hopes for a scoop, to organize an aid transport. Kim is hell-bent to get blood units and medication into Fallujah, but the transport has to return within the 24 hours or face the consequences.

Oliver′s experienced cameraman Ralf is pessimistic about the plan while Husam, the local driver, has his own hidden agenda. Joining them is Alain Laroche, one of the last doctors in the zone.

The five take to the road through a devastated country. Overcoming severe obstacles, they make it to Fallujah, where the situation is dire. Desperate, they decide to take as many wounded back to Baghdad as they can. But will they make it before the 24 hours are up?
