Oscar and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick presents a groundbreaking documentary investigation into one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the US military. An estimated 30 percent of servicewomen and at least 1 percent of servicemen are sexually assaulted during their enlistment at the hands of fellow soldiers. Focusing on the compelling stories of survivors, this powerful film reveals the systemic cover up of the crimes against them and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice within a Kafkaesque military legal system.
