SYNOPSIS Sayn is an Australian doctor in a war zone. She has been rescued from an explosion by a young soldier, Bir. Bir is seventeen and has been a child soldier since he was eleven. He has saved her because she is a doctor, but if he finds she is an American spy, he’ll have no hesitation in blowing her head off.

Harriers explores Australia’s involvement in other countries, training militia and providing arms and then abandoning the rebel forces we’ve trained, leaving them to be decimated to decimate others.
