Synopsis: An intense portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat, behaving as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

My first instinct was that this picture worked great on its own, everything, whether itís the sound design, the music, or anything else thatís done with it, itís going to have to be done very carefully to enhance whatís going on in the film. The danger of using music might take the viewer out of the picture if it was scored in a traditional sense. My first instinct was that we canít score this in the traditional sense, we have to think more about taking sounds from the environment and musical sounds, to process them in a way so that it heightens the feeling of disorientation and the emotionality thatís already present in the movie.
