The US Special Forces team ‘12 Strong’.

On September 11, 2001, the world watched the 9/11 attack in terror. On September 12, 2001, Captain Mitch Nelson leads a US Special Forces team into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Once there, the soldiers must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban and its al-Qaida allies. Outgunned and outnumbered, Nelson and his forces face overwhelming odds in a fight against a ruthless enemy that takes no prisoners.

12 Strong is based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers. It is story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11. The movie is directed by Nicolai Fuglsig and stars Academy Award nominees Michael Shannon, Chris Hemsworth, and Michael Pena.
