The film was made shortly after the war in Iraq 2003. The Agent Orange was said to be harmless - the cover-up was not revealed before 23 years after the war.

Out of 81 million Vietnamese inhabitants, more than 1 million adults today are ill from the illnesses related to having being sprayed heavily with Agent Orange. We also visit former U.S. soldiersâ€™ families, whose children have even died of congenital defects - their fathers still ill. Going to Iraq, visiting the hospitals where children die from cancer and congenital defects due to depleted uranium used in U.S. antitanks weapons in the war in 1991.
