In OUTSIDE THE WIRE, filmmaker Anthony Hornus accompanies the fearless American Provincial Reconstruction Teams as they distribute humanitarian aid to villagers in northeastern Afghanistan. Colonel Victor Kuchar is the highest ranking Air Force intelligence officer to regularly travel into the tribal regions. He runs a grassroots effort called Operation Care, which distributes food, water, clothing, blankets, and medical supplies to widows and orphans in refugee camps and desperately poor villages. Now Hornus travels with Kuchar "outside the wire" – outside the protective walls lined with razor wire that surround army bases. Only U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces (with members of the Ohio Army National Guard's Military Police) can get aid into these isolated places, which are so dangerous that relief agencies don't dare go. Hornus's goal is to publicize the Forces' efforts to make a positive difference in the country and to draw attention to the plight of the millions of wide-eyed children living under the radar – and outside the wire. -B.B.
