The Hornet's Nest is a groundbreaking and immersive feature film, using unprecedented real footage to tell the story of elite groups of U.S. soldiers and Marines sent on dangerous missions deep inside some of Afghanistan's most hostile valleys. The film culminates with what was planned as a single day strike turning into nine intense days of harrowing combat against an invisible, hostile enemy in the country's complex terrain where no foreign troops have ever dared to go before. Two embedded journalists, a father and son, bravely followed the troops through the fiercest and most blood-soaked battlegrounds of the conflict.

A thought-provoking documentary follows father and son journalists through days of intense combat. Though you know there will be casualties, you can't look away. Each loss feels
like your own. The reality is both heart-breaking and meaningful. My admiration and respect
for American troops has deepened profoundly. Highly recommended.

Everyone should see this film out of respect for the men and women who fight for our freedom. Real footage of the fighting and the reality of war. Very well done by the father and son photojournalist team.
