A documentary about two brothers serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq opens Friday at the Lakewood Towne Center.

What makes “Brothers at War” unique is that the film was made by a third brother, Jake Rademacher.

Shot both stateside and in Iraq the film covers dramatic action and portrays the effects of the brothers’ service on their family and the friends they left behind.

The two Army brothers, Cpt. Isaac Rademacher and Sgt. Joseph Rademacher were both with the 1/504 Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division.

According to a synopsis from the film’s website:

Jake embeds with four combat units in Iraq. Unprecedented access to U.S. and Iraqi combat units take him behind the camouflage curtain with secret reconnaissance troops on the Syrian border, into sniper “Hide Sites” in the Sunni Triangle, through raging machine gun battles with the Iraqi Army.  Ultimately, the film follows his brothers home where separations and life-threatening work ripple through their parents, siblings, wives and children.
