The true story of a Army National Guard Major who deploys to Afghanistan and discovers that his powerful superior is mentally unstable and abusive. After a soldier commits suicide the commander decides to risks his career and ultimately his life to expose the truth.
PITCH: MAJOR STEVE TAYLOR, 42, reports to Fort Hood, Texas, to prepare for deployment to Afghanistan. He’s going from the cushy life of a brigade staff officer to the trenches as a go-to-war company commander. Arriving late to a briefing, Steve finds his loyalty questioned by the battalion commander, LT. COL. BEN ARBOGAST, 45, an arrogant despot who rails against the “incompetence” of his staff. Witnessing numerous instances of verbal abuse and erratic behavior, Steve covertly teams up with FIRST SERGEANT GLENN KIZER, 55, a Germanic, silver-haired disciplinarian on his fourth tour, for “Operation Macbeth,” a five-phase secret plan to get rid of Arbogast. In Afghanistan Arbogast discovers the secret plot and sets out to destroy Steve. Steve’s survival depends on whether he can rally support in a compound paralyzed by intimidation. After a soldier commits suicide Steve must decide whether it is worth risking his career and ultimately his life to expose Arbogast.
