In 2010 a platoon of US infantry soldiers were reported in the news as ‘The Kill Team’ after murdering Afghan civilians for sport. Two years later, filmmaker Dan Krauss focuses on whistle blower Adam Winfield and his family during his prosecution by the US army. Interviews with two other platoon members charged for premeditated murder, combined with shocking pictures and films taken by the soldiers at the time of the events, give context to this chilling tale of war crime in the US military. The Kill Team is a thoughtful study of culpability and allegiance to authority.
