‘DO NOT HESITATE’ SELECTED FOR COMPETITION AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL…
By Shariff Korver
During a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East, a Dutch military convoy is forced to split up in the middle of desolate mountains as one of the vehicles suddenly slides off the road. Three young soldiers, Erik, Roy and Thomas, are commanded to stay behind to guard the vehicle. Frightened by some rustling in the bushes, Thomas accidentally shoots and kills a goat. The rightful owner presents himself, 14-year-old goatherd Khalil, who is furious at the soldiers and refuses to leave the site. After this, disastrous events begin to pile up. When a local caravan ambushes them and steals their water and food supply, the three soldiers are forced to follow Khalil into hostile territory in a desperate search for water. Slowly, paranoia begins to disseminate. Where is Khalil actually leading them and can they really trust him?
