Jirga is an emotional story of a former soldier seeking forgiveness directed by Benjamin Gilmour (Son of a Lion) and produced by John Maynard ( Sherpa, The Rehearsal, The Bank,  Balibo, Romulus My Father)

Made under extraordinary, and extremely dangerous, conditions, Jirga tells the emotional story of a former Australian soldier who travels to Afghanistan to seek forgiveness.

Three years after an Australian army helicopter raid on a small village led to the killing of an unarmed man, former Australian soldier Mike (Sam Smith) returns to Afghanistan to find the victim’s family. Doggedly, he sets off on a perilous journey over a terrain where both the Taliban and ISIS are active. Mike is determined to make amends and so puts his life in the hands of the Jirga – the village justice system.
