A historic report on General Massoud's struggle against the Taliban.

As General Massoud fights the Taliban in Northern Afghanistan his brother Abdul Wali Massoud stuggles against pro-Taliban attempts to oust him from his London Embassy. Massoud's fighters pick their way across a rocky minefield to the front line where they fire mortars , gesturing to barley visible Taliban forces in the ravine. A Taliban solider lies dead a few metres from their vantage point. Seasoned fighters bark orders at recruits. In a lighter moment Massoud joins a game of rock throwing, cracking jokes with his men. We follow Massoud's risky journey to meet Dostum and Khallili when these leaders tried to form an alliance. Massoud's bodyguards nervously scan the surrounding countryside 5 hours from their destination. Taliban prisoners washing in a stream at Massoud's base camp defend their enforcement of Islamic law. Engineer Mirdad is responsible for feeding the thousands of refugees in what he regards as one of the last tolerant corners of Afghanistan. Veiled women explain why they fled the Taliban's advance from their village near Kabul. No one is quick to forget that he succeeeded against the Russians in the Panshir Valley 18 years.
