A young woman (Kristen Stewart, TWILIGHT) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. She ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.

A lean and mean essay on human bondage, a minimalist examination of living life to the least.
—Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
Stewart matches the strong impression she made in films earlier in her career such as Panic Room, In the Land of Women and especially The Cake Eaters. She deftly handles the simmering emotion that a soldier has to tamp down for superiors and prisoners...
—Brian Truitt, USA Today
Stroup's work balances nicely on that line of infusing his work with real feeling but never pushing it to the realm where it becomes a signpost for how to feel or interpret a scene.
