It was his commentary that people heard when the film was leaked to the British newspaper, News of the World and was shown across the globe. Despite no charges being brought against him, Martin left the Army soon afterward. Diary of a Disgraced Soldier follows him from the day he leaves the Army, on an intense journey that sees him struggle to come to terms with post-military life haunted by that video. He embarks upon a deeply personal investigation into the events of Al Amarah, using a prolific creative energy to produce paintings, poetry and music - and visits his old army mates to get their take on what happened in Iraq. Along the way his video diaries chart his anger, shame, and depression as he comes to terms with his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and voices his new - found political awareness. His energies culminate with the 'Voices of War' concert and an art gallery exhibition, which he hopes will channel his energies positively and mark the start of a new beginning. Diary of a Disgraced Soldier began as an investigation into one shameful moment, but as the story unravels, turns into a quest to see if Martin can ever leave Al Amarah behind.
