Lieutenant Shane Aguero's platoon is part of 'routine' patrols in Baghdad's unruly Shiite sector Sadr City, but gets cut off and isolated, surrounded by hostile militia. As they seek uninvited shelter in the home of Alim, suspicion of treason is quickly raised against local translator Jassim, who firmly denies and is duly defended by Aguero, but has just a hard time with the family's biter collaboration reproaches as they become prisoners at home just for being locals. Colonel Volsky hears about their predicament and charges captain Denomy with a major rescue mission, which requires armored protection. Written by KGF Vissers

Jassim and his kin buddy Humam were not impressed with the allied order since their occupation made daily life worse then under Saddam, so tempted by scares supplies freely offered in the mosque, they joined Sadr's Shiite movement. Loyal Jassim nearly rose to deputy, but was shattered and disgusted when his critical mate was executed as 'renegade' and took an interpreter job. Now he's again treated as if unreliable by the troops, considered a traitor by his own people, but proves diplomatic enough to prevent cocky sergeant Jackson guarding their involuntary host family stopping life-saving medication for cardiac patient Alim. Sadr's militia ceases the inconclusive sniper siege, seemingly withdraws, but returns with numerous civilians as human shields, including children. Jassim bravely and wisely pleads reason and Coranic virtues impressing his compatriots, but a single hothead officer resumes the advance, so close that shocked lieutenant Shane Aguero is forced to order firing.
