The cinematic tells the story of Bangalore, the consummate professional soldier from a family of soldiers. We see Bangalore, who is torn between her brother and the only cause she’s ever known, loyalty to the IMC. Bangalore has difficult decisions to make – and hard consequences to face – after the Battle of Gridiron.
