Directors Graham Egarr and Tim Smart worked closely together to achieve a realistic confrontation between a British soldier and an Afghan boy as the sun goes down over the city of Kabul. A combination of lighting, specially prepared dust and a smoke machine helped to give an authentic hot and dusty look to the action.
Extensive work with green screen CGI elements of burning land rovers, dusty streets and city rooftops was achieved by Declan Smith in post production.
David Price wrote the script and the film had its first showing in April 2014.
