Opens Friday, Jun 6, 2014 Synopsis: A routine accident inspection on a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier yields unexpected repercussions in this semi-autobiographical military drama from writer/director DMW Greer. The fateful series of events are set into motion when a military investigator is dispatched to investigate a pair of deadly accidents aboard an aircraft carrier. Though initially the inquiry, involving F-18 jets, appears decidedly straightforward, the focus gradually begins to shift after a senior fighter pilot is spotted in a gay nightclub. Before long, the aviator in question, his three squadron mates, and their families are being subjected to intense scrutiny, putting their careers in jeopardy, and leaving their lives in an irreparable state of ruin. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Trent Ford, Morgan Spector, Rob Mayes, William Lee Scott, Tammy Blanchard Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
