A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. But she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.

“I had the opportunity to watch this film and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by Kristen Stewart’s performance. There are a lot of people who either love or hate her… but I think her acting skills have evolved and she had a really great story! The movie is touching but very real as it relates to terrorist activity. I’m sure every American has an idea in their mind of who terrorists are, but this film shows you a different side of them. It also shows you the struggles you face being in the military. You will definitely want to check out this film, you will not be disappointed!”
