Specialist Adam Winfield, a 21-year-old infantryman in Afghanistan, attempted (with the help of his father) to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. When his father's pleas for help went unheeded, Adam was left to face his scornful platoon members, who threatened to silence him - permanently. Forced to choose between his conscience and his own survival, Adam found himself drawn into a moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever.
