The Kill Hole

The Kill Hole: Years ago, Samuel Drake, an American security contractor, led his men in a brutal revenge attack on a village outside of Fallujah, Iraq, which resulted in the slayings of several civilians. Now, the incident haunts his mind daily, as he tries to piece his life back together, working night shifts as a cab driver and living out of a cheap motel. But the past comes back to haunt him further when his former employer tracks him down with a mission: to kill Devin Carter, an AWOL Marine Corps sniper who witnessed the event, and has begun a violent campaign against the company to expose the atrocity he saw.

The Kill Hole is a poetic and intense psychological drama that examines the experience of the veteran and the unique bond that exists between men who share that trauma of combat.
