Overview
GUNNER PALACE reveals the complex realities of the situation in Iraq not seen on the nightly news. Told first-hand by our troops, 'Gunner Palace' presents a thought-provoking portrait of a dangerous and chaotic war that is personal, highly emotional, sometimes disturbing, surprisingly amusing and thoroughly fascinating. Filmmaker Michael Tucker, who lived with 2/3 Field Artillery, a.k.a. "The Gunners" for two months, captures the lives and humanity of these soldiers whose barracks are the bombed-out pleasure palace of Uday Hussein (nicknamed Gunner Palace), situated in the heart of the most volatile section of Baghdad.

With total access to operations and activities, Tucker's true insiderfootage provides a rare look at the day-to-day lives of these soldiers on the ground – whether swimming in Uday's pool and playing golf on his putting green or executing raids on suspected terrorists, enduring road-side bombs, mortar attacks, RPGs and ever-present snipers.
