In March of 2009, 22-year old Trooper Marc Diab of The Royal Canadian Dragoons was killed in Afghanistan when his vehicle struck an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). In the wake of his death, countless lives were changed forever. If I Should Fall tells the story of Marc's life through the accounts of those who loved him: his family, his comrades of D Squadron, and his beloved girlfriend.

Told in 13 chapters and going beyond the six o'clock news, viewers see the human face behind the honour and sacrifice of Canadian soldiers.

Supported by an ensemble of renowned Canadian military experts, including retired Major General Lewis MacKenzie, Esprit De Corps Magazine's Scott Taylor, and author Captain Ray Wiss M.D., the film explores Canada's role in Afghanistan and the timeless tragedy of what it means to lose a loved one to war.
