Former Australian soldier Mike (Sam Smith) is a haunted man. During a tour of Afghanistan, he accidentally shot a man who was unarmed, and has never been able to forget. Determined to right this most grievous of wrongs, Mike sets out to find the man’s family, and throw himself at the mercy of the village court of traditional Afghani justice – the Jirga.
Directed by Benjamin Gilmour, who along with actor Sam Smith literally trekked through the dangerous territories of the film’s setting for months in order to make the film, JIRGA is a courageous and empathetic depiction of the human costs of the War on Terror.
