This documentary introduces us to Captain Mark Sargent, chaplain to the Canadian peacekeepers (soldiers of the First Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry) stationed in former Yugoslavia. It offers an intimate look at the work of this remarkable man as he travels from bunker to bunker and from village to village, ministering to soldiers and civilians caught in the bloody conflict that has torn apart the Balkans.

This film is part of the 3-part Protection Force Series about Canadian peacekeeping in former Yugoslavia.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised
