Bachelors of War is a short observational doc where the makers of the film spent a day with two friends during Ramadhan, who were forced to send their wives and children abroad due to the war in Yemen, battle bouts of boredom due to joblessness, and fend for themselves in the kitchen. Although witty in tone, it illustrates the underlying frustrations and worries of many young men in the face of stunted progress, divided families, empty homes, and broken dreams.
