When an ace fighter pilot’s career in the sky is ended due to an unexpected pregnancy, she accepts a position operating drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas. Remotely hunting terrorists from thousands of miles away, the pressure to track a high-profile target escalates, forever blurring her roles as wife, mother, and sniper.
Timely and poignant, Grounded explores the dissolving boundaries between one woman’s two realities: the job for which she targets terrorists by day, and the family to which she returns each night.
