Colonel Joost de Wolf is an officer with the Dutch Marine Corps. In 2014, he starts leading military operations as part of the UN peace mission in Mali. When the Malinese government threatens to thwart the brittle peace process, De Wolf tries to use a mix of charm and dash to regain control. But he is hampered by a lack of political will from both the UN headquarters and the authorities in The Hague. De Wolf decides to act autonomously, but this inadvertently jeopardises his military career. A unique glimpse behind the scenes.
