The true story of Dog Company commander Capt. Roger Hill, who defended the lives of his men in combat and then was forced to defend himself against the same military he served.
Dog Company was assigned to a "peaceful" outpost in Wardak, Afghanistan, when a spike in insurgency attacks meant that they were quickly outmanned. Things took a more dire turn when 12 Afghani contractors working in the base are discovered as being Al Qaeda spies.
Suddenly, Capt. Hill is faced with a terrible choice: act outside the bounds of military law to save his men, or risk the lives of every man in Dog Company to save his career?
Using nonviolent means, Capt. Hill gains confessions, but is charged with war crimes in violation of the Geneva Convention. When the fight moves to the courtroom, Capt. Hill must defend himself against the military he pledged his life to serve.
