A Dutch military convoy on a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East, becomes stranded when their vehicle breaks down in the desert. As they wait for a repair team, they mistake a goat for an adversary and shoot it dead in the bushes. The furious goat’s owner, a local 14-year-old boy, appears and refuses to leave. As tensions simmer and supplies dwindle, paranoia begins to disseminate amongst the men leading to some irreversible choices. Do Not Hesitate excels as both a taut thriller and a haunting psychological study.

This film contains scenes of emotional and physical abuse.
