Play Video

Over the course of the last century, the U.S. has encircled the world with a web of military bases unlike any other in history. Today, they amount to more than 700, in 40 countries. No continent is spared. They are one the most powerful forces at play in the world today, yet one of the less talked-about. They have shaped the lives of millions, yet remain a mystery to most. This documentary sheds light on one of the most defining - and less-known - realities of our time, through eye-opening interviews and shocking yet inspiring testimonies.
