Nestled safely in an Air Force base bunker deep in the Nevada desert, Airman Jack Bowles (Matt O'Leary) mentors Lieutenant Sue Lawson (Eloise Mumford) in the field of Drone warfare when she identifies a high-level AI-Qaeda target, Mamhoud Khalil, from high over Afghanistan.
Preparing to launch a missile attack, Lawson finds herself in a moral quandary about the nature of the surgical strike, which will kill not just Khalil, but also innocent victims. With time running out, the soldiers begin to question what the real motives are behind the ordered lethal attack, an act that could end both their careers.
A taut military thriller, Drones explores the complex moral issues facing a US military that relies more and more heavily on the use of unmanned drones to execute its strategies.
