Movie Info

When Private Adam Winfield, a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan, witnessed members of his platoon murder innocent civilians (planting weapons on the corpses to make it appear as though they were terrorists), he attempted to alert the military to these heinous war crimes with the help of his father. But Winfield's pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Private Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever. (c) Official Site
