KORENGAL picks up where RESTREPO (Academy Award Nominee, 2010 Sundance Film Festival Documentary Grand Jury Prize winner) left off; the same men, the same valley, the same commanders, but a very different look at the experience of war. KORENGAL explains how war works, what it feels like, and what it does to the young men who fight it.
