Do Not Hesitate

Director: Shariff Korver
Psychological thriller in which three young soldiers during a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East get stuck in a hot desert. Fear, thirst and paranoia slowly but surely get the upper hand.
During a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East, three young soldiers are left to their own devices when their military vehicle breaks down in the middle of the scorching desert. Increasingly disconnected from reality, the soldiers try to keep their cool. Catastrophic events mount up when the privates follow a fourteen-year-old boy to enemy territory, looking for water. Can they really trust this boy? Is their paranoia justified?
