Summary

Young Army Reserve enlistee Jack Farmer (Luke Moran) experiences an intense crisis of conscience after becoming a prison guard at Abu Ghraib in Iraq, where his commanding officer (Sean Astin) coerces him into using intense interrogation techniques on a terrified detainee (Omid Abtahi) who appears to have committed no crime. Before long, the soldier who joined the military to defend his country begins to unravel due to the inhuman treatment he witnesses in a daily basis. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
