Using film material from official and personal archives, television reports, feature films, Adam Curtis has constructed a story about the part of the world, which in the several last decades has suffered from the endless bloodshed and conflicts - Afghanistan. It all starts with the first meetings of the US president Franklin D. Roosevelt and the king of Afghanistan, and continues throughout a century-long history of political decisions and conspiracies, advantageous to the United States and the Middle East. Guns, oil, fundamentalism, money - this vocabulary is often met in the daily international discourses and banner headlines. A. Curtis takes up a difficult task to unveil the prehistory of terrorism as we know it and to expose the role of the Western world in it, as well as to remind the viewer of the powerful manipulations of the media.
