Synopsis

Before creating Sports Night and The West Wing, Sorkin launched his career with this military drama. During the summer of 1986, while serving at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, a young Marine is killed by fellow Marines. As members of the Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corp begin preparing their defense, discrepancies arise, leading everyone to question what really happened that night in Cuba and the difference between truth and justice.

“Dense political thriller .. Scenes crackle with excitement … a classic!”
