Eight tapes were found where the last known battle between Osama bin Laden and rebel forces took place in the Taliban stronghold of Southern Afghanistan. These tapes reveal filmmaker Don Larson's travels to the war-torn country of Afghanistan six months after 9/11 and follow him and a bounty hunter on the trailer of Osama bin Laden. In this rare look behind-the-scenes of war-torn Afghanistan, the filmmaker, his cameraman, and their translator/guide find themselves traveling in the middle of a battleground, camera in hand, capturing raw footage and encountering dangerous Taliban fighters. Much of the film's footage was held by the U.S. Department of Defense. It is the first non-Afghani film shot in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban, and it is also the first feature film shot in an active war zone.
