One year later, in 2008, he returns to Los Angeles, California but soon goes to Georgia on the advice of some of his friends in Tbilisi, who suspect that a large conflict is brewing.. He, along with his cameraman Sebastian Ganz , delve deeper into Georgian life as conflict escalates and they get caught in the crossfire when an air raid strikes a local wedding they stumble upon.. With members of the wedding party, and the help of a Georgian soldier who had earlier saved them in Iraq, their mission becomes getting their footage of an atrocity by Russian irregulars out of the country.. But they find themselves faced with international apathy due to the opening of the 2008 Olympic Games... Their flight leads them to the Battle of Gori..

The name is from Georgian gora (გორა), that is, "heap", or "hill"..David IV, also known as David the Builder ( დავით აღმაშენებელი, Davit Aghmashenebeli) (1073 – 24 January 1125), of the Bagrationi dynasty, was a king of Georgia from 1089 until his death in 1125..The territory of Gori has been populated since the early Bronze Age..Gori was captured by the Alan tribesmen fleeing the Mongol conquest of their original homeland in the North Caucasus.. The Georgian king George V recovered the town in 1320, pushing the Alans back over the Caucasus mountains... it is brought home to you, at least while you are watching, that it is only because miners sweat their guts out that superior persons can remain superior...
