KAJAKI - THE TRUE STORY is a British war film, based on events that took place in Helmand Province in Afghanistan in 2006.

A small unit of soldiers is positioned on a ridge overlooking the Kajaki dam. A three-man patrol sets out to disable a Taliban roadblock. In a dried out river bed at the foot of the ridge, one of the patrol detonates a land mine, blowing off his leg and setting into motion a desperate rescue mission.

The film captures the horrors and the human cost of modern warfare.

Hosted by the H-Hour Podcast and Veterans For Peace UK the film will be followed by a Q&A with soldiers from 3 Para who served in Kajaki.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Veterans Aid.
