Directed by DMW Greer
With Trent Ford, Morgan Spector, Rob Mayes
Rated R, 96 minutes

Trained to meet danger head-on, a close-knit squadron of Navy pilots begins to splinter after a series of fatal accidents and becomes the focus of a criminal investigation. As a government agent seeks to uncover the cause of the accidents, two pilots engage in a secret, forbidden affair that will challenge their notions of friendship, love, honor, and courage. Based on the Olivier Award-winning stage play, the film is drawn from director DMW Greer’s personal experiences serving in the Navy during the period of the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

Filmmaker DMW Greer will speak before the film is shown and will be available to answer questions afterward.
