The riveting journey of coalition soldiers as they land unarmed into the heat of a 10 year civil war using only the weapons of Music, Maori Culture and Love to create peace.   This radical idea of sending soldiers without guns was condemned by the  media because they felt the soldiers would be massacred given the first 14 peace attempts had failed.  This film shines a light on the untold story, of unsung heroes and their, “mission impossible.” A story of love, compassion and hope in a world struggling with growing and entrenched hostilities.
