Drama

In GROUNDED, a hotshot fighter pilot finds her career in the sky interrupted by an unplanned pregnancy. Reassigned to a “desk job,” she fights a war by day, and then returns to her family and her daughter’s pink ponies by night. As she operates drones in Afghanistan remotely from a windowless trailer outside of Las Vegas, her life in the desert begins to collide with the desert she is patrolling on the other side of the world. This compelling and searing look at moral responsibility, contradictory choices and modern warfare seamlessly blends the personal and the political as it explodes our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling.
