Description: Alarmed at the USA's revitalization of its missile defense and nuclear weapons design programs, famous anti-nuclear campaigner Dr. Helen Caldicott sets out to "end the nuclear age in five years," armed only with a new book and the furious conviction that she can inspire the American public to rise up against its own Military Industrial complex. Taking place over the volatile 12 months in which America invaded Afghanistan and then Iraq, 'Helen's War' is the portrait of a blatant optimist by a Gen X cynic in desperate need of conversion.
