Grounded

CPH presents Page 73's production

written by George Brant
directed by Ken Rus Schmoll
starring Hannah Cabell

Run time: 90 minutes. No intermission
Advisory: For mature audiences

An unexpected pregnancy ends an ace fighter pilot's career in the sky. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.
