Set in 1990s Scotland, this period/military comedy was based on a true story about a young US Marine on his first deployment, and the jaded sergeant charged with training him are given Satellite Drop Duty – retrieve a canister of intel. and deliver it to the Watch Officer before time runs out.
This film required accurate wardrobe, period vehicles, and a custom set to be build with workstations and working screens. In addition the film takes place in Scotland but was filmed in San Diego, California. There were several shots that required Visual Effects.
