An unexpected pregnancy ends an ace fighter pilots career in the sky. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.

Grounded is a heartbreaking, beautiful, necessary and perfectly-structured solo drama... an essential story for our times.

A searing piece of writing...gripping...a must-see.

Thought provoking, thoroughly engrossing... pulses with the rhythms of an epic war poem.
