Tillman Story

Pat Tillman chose to walk away from a multimillion-dollar football contract and join the military for no other reason than he felt it was the right thing to do. Documented are the facts surrounding the way the military manipulated his tragic death in the line of duty into a propaganda tool, which is totally unfathomable.

Both the government and media were looking for the "ideal American" hero. Pat Tillman's image and career were used in a media blitz to drum up support for the war in Afghanistan. The deceit unraveled before the eyes of the world.
The film touches on the not mentioned use of sports as war metaphor.
