The Film

After leading reconstruction teams in Iraq for two years, 26-year-old Kirk Johnson returns home to discover that many of his former Iraqi colleagues are being killed, kidnapped, or forced into exile by radical militias. Frustrated by a stagnating government bureaucracy that has failed to protect these people, he begins compiling a list of Iraqi allies and helps them find refuge and a new life in America. The List traces the evolution of Kirk's campaign from a one-man crusade into a nationwide grassroots movement.
