Actor Cliff Robertson narrates this hour-long color documentary that covers the horror and starvation caused by the war between Biafra and Nigeria. The body count soars with fresh victims in various states of post-mortem mutilation shown minutes after their lives have reached a gory and violent end. Nigeria has attacked Biafra for establishing their own country. As the tribal warfare continued, worldwide attention was focused on the plight of the Biafrans. No credits are given other than Robertson in this disturbing feature that illustrates and underscores the horrors of war and the loss of human compassion.
