World Premiere
by T.D. Mitchell
Directed by Lucie Tiberghien

After a harrowing incident on deployment in Iraq, Private Amanda Lewis doesn’t know where to turn for help—until she meets 2nd Lt. Molly Solinas. As a fifth generation woman Marine, Molly always believed she was prepared for anything, but her oath to protect and defend is severely tested by Amanda's revelations. Soon the women are forced to make a dangerous decision, as they struggle to find justice for Amanda in a system weighted against them.
