Fighting, by Tom Green. Directed by Kate Bannister. 'Will we fight back? Without any weapons. What are we going to do? Throw stones? Call them names?' Two soldiers flee from an ambush in the middle of the night. They think it’s just a military exercise but the arrival of a wounded colleague suggests that the fighting is for real. So who is behind it? And are they out there still, hunting them down? Fighting is a provocative new drama that compels us to question what we can rely on and whose account of the truth we should believe.
