Why does a group of stranded paratroopers call for Bofors' fire upon its own position?
Why is an old man in Palampur fighting for justice for his dead soldier son?
What makes a martyr's father visit a young Kashmiri girl every year?

Kargil takes you into the treacherous mountains where some of Indian Army's bloodiest battles were fought. Interviewing war survivors and martyrs' families, Rachna Bisht Rawat tells stories of extraordinary human courage, of not just men in uniform but also those who loved them the most. With its gritty stories of incomparable bravery, Kargil is a tribute to the 527 young braves who gave up their lives for us-and the many who were ready to do it too.
