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.
In the first week of shooting (during the summer in Jordan), there was a heat wave. It was so hot that the cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd, became sick with heat stroke.
Sergeant JT Sanborn:
Staff Sergeant William James: That's my son. He's ' tough little bastard. Nothin' like me.
Sergeant JT Sanborn: You mean to tell me you married?
Staff Sergeant William James: Well, you know, I had a girlfriend and, uh, she got pregnant, so we got married, and we got divorced... or, you know, I thought we got divorced...
