Synopsis

On the brink of the 2007 U.S. troop surge, two Army Recruiters face,he daunting pressures of recruitment while their own deployment is on the line. Sgt. Harris (Lew Temple) has been stationed in the recruiting office long enough for it to feel like home.
Based on true events. Set amongst a team of Army recruiters stationed in an everyman enclave of middle America in 2007, it is a dark, disturbing take on the swirling maelstrom of national pride and muddied morality that swept through the US homeland post-9/11.
