    Synopsis: The Other Army is a documentary that seeks to understand the issues faced by Pakistan in its struggle against terrorism. It tributes the people who have sacrificed their lives in counter-terrorism efforts and provides a glimpse into the lives of their survivors. The film brings to light the Pakistanis who believe in the need to root out fanaticism, extremism, and to restore peace and stability to the world. Over 3,500 members of the Pakistani army have died in combat and 40,000 civilians have died as a consequence of terrorism and the war against it since 2001. The film counters the popular narrative in the American media that Pakistan is complicit in supporting terrorists.
