Overview

In the Nevada desert, a now pregnant ace F-16 fighter pilot has been reassigned to a new position, flying a remote-controlled drone from an Air Force trailer. Her 12-hour shifts hunting terrorist targets in the Middle East are followed by 12 hours at home, struggling as a wife and mother in suburban Las Vegas. The mounting pressure to track a high-profile target blurs the boundaries between the desert she lives in and the one she patrols, half a world away. “Top Notch – a chilling portrait of future war” – New York Magazine. “A stratospheric level of theatrical intensity” – The Telegraph.
