The Hornet's Nest Film follows Mike and Carlos Boettcher's struggle to reconnect, after years of separation, they become the only father and son journalist team to embed with American Troops on the front lines in Afghanistan. These heart pounding missions soon become a fight for survival for Father, Son, the Soldiers, and Marines in the mountains and deserts of Afghanistan in The Hornet’s Nest - a ground breaking feature film "which is unlike any other".
Armed only with their cameras, Peabody and Emmy winning war correspondent, Mike Boettcher, and his son, Carlos, spend over a year covering the most violent era of the Afghanistan war. With cameras rolling, they are side by side with American forces in some of the conflict’s toughest battles. Their story is "Lone Survivor" meets "Blackhawk Down" except 100% REAL, as Mike and Carlos discover that the family bond they seek is right in front of them – displayed daily in the actions of the Soldiers and Marines who sacrifice everything to save the lives of their brothers.
A true story captured as it happened on Afghanistan’s battlefields, The Hornet’s Nest is the definitive film of America's longest war.
