Follows three young, committed Public Defenders who are dedicated to working for the people society would rather forget. Long hours, low pay and staggering caseloads are so common that even the most committed often give up.
Pat Tillman never thought of himself as a hero. His choice to leave a multimillion-dollar football contract and join the military wasn't done for any reason other than he felt it was the right thing to do. The fact that the military manipulated his tragic death in the line of duty into a propaganda tool is unfathomable and thoroughly explored in Amir Bar-Lev's riveting and enraging documentary.Written by

During the closing credits, it is stated that Pat Tillman's mother, Dannie, "now arranges funerals at a Catholic cemetary." The correct spelling is cemetery. See more »
We have been asked over and over again, 'What can we do for your family?' And it makes me sick. It's not about our family. Our family will never be satisfied. We'll never have Pat back. But what is so outrageous is that this isn't about Pat. This is about what they did to a nation.

Wow This film covered Pat Tillmans story to the fullest. I had little to know clue what expect from this documentary. but after watching it three times it has all settled in. Pat was a courageous man who wasn't looking for the spotlight, clearly by joining the war he proved that. It is outrageous that the Military would twist the facts of his death to paint a picture of the All-American hero when that wasn't who Pat was!!! Pats Family is a huge part of this documentary and you can really feel their pain seeing their son/brother being displayed and grabbed out by all the tabloids and political figures trying to push their cause.
