Waters wants the documentary to be viewed as an anti-war film, and true to form, the movie contains clips of Waters “visiting war cemeteries and memorials in Europe, including the grave of a grandfather who died in World War One, and the site of the 1944 battle that killed Water’s father when the singer was just a baby.”
