Soldiers of Conscience is a dramatic window on the dilemma of individual U.S. soldiers in the Iraq war which followed the terrorist attack against the World Trade Center in N.Y., when their finger is on the trigger and another human being is in their gunsight.

This film, made with cooperation of the us Army and is narrated by Peter Coyote, profiles eight American soldiers, including four who decide not to kill, and become conscientious objectors and four who believe in their duty to kill if necessary. The film reveals all of them wrestling with the morality of killing in war, not as a philosophical problem, but as soldiers experience it -- a split-second decision in combat that can never be forgotten or undone. http://www.pbs.org/pov/soldiersofconscience/film-description/
