Summary
Corporal Martin Webster became publicly vilified when his cell phone footage of British soldiers beating young Iraqi civilians, accompanied by Webster's mocking voice-over, went viral in 2006. Even now Webster finds it hard to listen to his own insensitive comments, saying he was a different person when the video was made. This deeply personal documentary follows Webster for 18 months, starting from the day he left the army to cope with posttraumatic stress disorder and his own intense feelings of shame about the incident. Releasing and exploring his turbulent emotions through vitriolic video diaries, poetry, painting, and music, Webster embarks on a journey to tell the world his side of the story.
