It’s the phone call every soldier’s father dreads. “Your son is missing.” What Hank Deerfield (Tommy Lee Jones) had never thought to fear, however, was that this call would come when his son, Mike, was home in the U.S., on leave from service in Baghdad. Hank decides to take matters into his own hands, and to figure out what happened to his son. From acclaimed writer/director Paul Haggis (Oscar winner for CRASH) comes the story, based on true events, of one father’s journey inside the veil of secrecy that cloaks the armed forces. With the reluctant help of Emily Sanders (Charlize Theron), a police detective, Hank’s investigation takes him right into the darkness of modern warfare.
