Synopsis

Inspired by actual events, the gripping story of 19-year-old Matt Ocre, a machine gunner in the 2003 Iraq War. Matt and his platoon are sent on a mission to repair a damaged aqueduct in the increasingly dangerous village of Baqubah. Things quickly turn from bad to worse as the rising and deadly Sunni insurgency threatens to tip the already unstable region into full-on bloodshed and mayhem. In the face of overwhelming adversity, Matt and his comrades-in-arms, Falvy and Bartles, under the command of Captain Syverson, must tap into hidden strength and courage if they hope to get out alive.
