During the Iraq War, a Sergeant recently assigned to an army bomb squad is put at odds with his squad mates due to his maverick way of handling his work.
The production had a hard time booking key crew members and department heads, since the film was shot on location in the Middle East (specifically in Jordan, the country right next door to Iraq).
Opening Quote by Chris Hedges:
The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.
The EOD technicians in the film are shown possessing multiple skills sets (military sniper being one) which are actually completely different job classifications within the US Army. They would have to train in each of these varied job classifications for months or even years ( in addition to their primary skills) before they would be able to employ their skills in combat.
There are no opening credits, not even a title.
