It documents the aftermath of the Gulf War and focuses on the lasting effects of the 300 tonnes of Depleted Uranium Weapons that were used. It especially centres on the plight of the many children who have been affected by these weapons . Depleted Uranium Weapons are known to causeleukemia, liver and kidney problems as well as vastly increasing thechances of abnormalities at birth.
