Numerous things have gone wrong with Middle East military missions. Given the circumstances and being surrounded by possible hostiles, soldiers are on extreme alert and suspicious as demonstrated in a military mission that gone awry in Do Not Hesitate.

In this intense drama, the film follows a trio of Dutch military soldiers abandoned to guard a highly expensive vehicle after its axis broke during a trek back to base. Being inexperienced soldiers without communication, paranoia kicked in at every moment awaiting for that ambush.

Here’s the official synopsis for Do Not Hesitate:

On a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East, a Dutch military convoy is forced to split up in the middle of desolate mountains as one of the vehicles suddenly slides off the road. Three young soldiers, Erik, Roy, and Thomas, are commanded to stay behind to guard the vehicle. Frightened by some rustling in the bushes, Thomas accidentally shoots and kills a goat. The rightful owner presents himself, 14-year-old goathered Khalil, who is furious at the soldiers and refuses to leave the site.

Disastrous events now begin to pile up. When a local caravan ambushes them and steals their water and food supply, the three soldiers are forced to follow Khalil into hostile territory in a desperate search for water. Slowly, paranoia begins to disseminate. Where is Khalil leading them and can they really trust him?
