Documentary on Friendly Fire Deaths to Premiere

ASKATD Long Trailer from 5414Productions on Vimeo.

In the works for over two years, A Second Knock at the Door offers a rare glimpse into the lives of military families dealing with the loss of loved ones to friendly fire. Through interviews and investigative reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, this documentary explores several key incidents in which the families of the fallen were forced to embark on a quest for the truth after the Army attempted to bury the true cause of death within the "fog of war."

Unwilling to allow these soldiers to be defined by their death, A Second Knock at the Door thoroughly explores these men outside of the uniform through the eyes of their community where they were known simply as sons, husbands, fathers, fianc├ęs, and friends.

A Second Knock at the Door is a portrait of strength and sacrifice, faith and honor, and an undying belief in the goodness of the men and women who give their lives for their country.
