Directed by
William Friedkin

In the beginning we see Hayes Hodges (Tommy Lee Jones) and Terry L. Childers (Samuel L. Jackson) as friends during the Vietnam War. While here a situation arises which threatens Hodges life. Put in jeopardy by an unarmed prisoner of war, Childers must now cross both moral and legal laws of war to kill the assailant.

Thirty years later we see Colonel Hayes Hodges as a war-torn military attorney and Colonel Terry Childers highly decorated and whom is still in active service.

Then Col. Childers and his troop are seen in Yemen, to escort a U.S. Ambassador and his family, through the recent uprising. However when hiostility between the U.S soldiers and Yemen protestors reaches boiling point, Childers snaps and orders his men to set fire on the civilian crowd.

This unfortunate event left over 150 people injured or dead and the U.S Government entirely to blame. Now, of course, beurocracy has dictated that Col. Childers will take the full heat of the blame, and the subsequent fall for his course of action.

Now we have the courtroom drama which features Childers old pal, Col. Hodges defending his friend in a high-profile trial where all odds are against a successful acquittal.
