Joost de Wolf is a hardened and savvy soldier who has devoted his life to the army. In 2014 he is appointed Deputy Commander Operations of the UN mission in Mali. Upon his arrival, the Malinese army launches an attack on the insurgents and De Wolf finds himself in a mission unable to keep the factions apart. Hampered by the lack of political will from the UN and his own masters, he starts questioning official policies and unwittingly jeopardizes his career.


The Mission is a new film on the UN mission to Mali (MINUSMA) as seen through the eyes of high-ranking military and civilian personel. With unprecedented access, a documentary is made which will give an up close and personal look at the UN military intervention in Mali.
