The program looks at the immediate cover-up by participants and higher-ups and the subsequent investigation (though the specifics of how the story actually broke are all but ignored), and assesses the charges and punishments meted out. Powerful interviews with soldiers and villagers tie together news and military-sourced footage and photos, commentary by historians, and animated maps. Note: brief profanity, graphic images and descriptions of atrocities.
Freshly wrenching detail and supremely relevant right now.
