"A mystery. A cover up. A Crime. One family will risk everything for the truth."

Pat Tillman
Sacrificing his professional football career to join the Army Rangers in 2002, Pat Tillman’s choice was seized by the media making him an instant symbol of patriotic fervour and unwavering duty. But the truth about Pat Tillman is far more complex, and ultimately more heroic. But when the government tried to turn his death into war propaganda, they took on the wrong family.

Led by Pat’s mother, Dannie Tillman, the family campaigned to reveal the truth beneath the mythology of their son’s life and death. Amir Bar-Lev’s documentary features forthright interviews with Pat’s fellow soldiers as well as his family, and calls to task the entire chain of command in this revelatory investigation.
