Set in the near future, DRONE follows one morning in the life of a military Drone Operator, played by EWEN BREMNER (Trainspotting and Black Hawk Down). Drone warfare has now become privatised and he works a 9 to 5 shift for a Drone company called JANA. One morning he is called in to do an 'early shift' and carry out a Drone mission on his own for the first time. Alone in the office, whilst he waits for his mission to go live he surfs the internet and plays solitaire like any other bored office worker. But his isolation makes him think for the first time about what he must do and the lethal hellfire missile he has to unleash at the touch of his joy stick on a suspect he's never seen before, thousands of miles away from him - across the other side of the world.

An office. An employer. His mission. And the decision. A film who you feel , scene by scene. Its coldness, the ordinary details, the traits of story and the loneliness of drone operator, the small details, from solitaire and caffe cup to the family life aspects, the fear and tension and the final gesture. A cold short film. Because the future who present it is, in fact, pure ordinary reality. Well crafted, honest and, almost, brutal. Like a knife edge.
