Jirga is a powerful story of a former Australian soldier who returns to Afghanistan to find the family of a civilian that he killed.
The film follows his perilous journey through dangerous and beautiful terrain in his search for redemption.
With the recent US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the emotional responses from those who served, Jirga shines a light on the complex human emotions of a war that will last forever for many.
