The fate of prisoners of war and missing in action is one of the darkest chapters of the Cold War. Tens of thousands of American soldiers European survivors were sent to unknown destinations during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

American soldiers captured in the Cold War – the enemy needs them as hostages and bargaining counters. Their own government denies their existence, leaving them to their fate.

Some escape and find their way home.  Others die in captivity – expecting the whole time that their government will “leave no Soldier behind” and rescue them.  Given the last century of American empire, this film is a shameful account of US government coverups, denials, and mishandling of POW situation.  The Red Cross has also been complicit – hiding records of prisoners of war to this day.

Documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick launches an incendiary, full-frontal assault on the Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Ratings Administration (a.k.a. the MPAA’s CARA).

This is the entity that assigns ratings to movies — the familiar G, PG, PG-13, R, and NC-17 designations.

The film rating system in this country is governed by a secret panel created by the major film studios more than 35 years ago. Since its inception the MPAA ratings board has functioned as a sort of ‘black box’ where movies go in one end and a rating comes out the other, with absolutely no transparency or public accountability of the process.

This secret, unregulated organization wields considerable power over the film industry and operates, the filmmaker asserts, on a highly subjective and prejudicial basis.
