SHORT NARRATIVE 21 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE UNMANNED
Rick Clayfield is a young drone operator controlling airstrikes in Afghanistan remotely from a base in America, and returning each day to his wife and toddler son in the suburbs. Rick is proof that today's "live at home" soldier can fight America's wars while leading a normal life. When he is jolted by the images of the dead civilians killed by one of his airstrikes, Rick struggles to balance his daily combat life with his nightly role as husband and father.
