An army recruit defiantly fights to be the first female guidon bearer.

Too often women have to work harder for the same opportunities as men. Paige Compton’s film based on her own experience of sexism during Army Basic Combat Training provides a glimpse into an environment that has often been toxic for women . This powerful story completely transported me into her world. The acting was superb and the cinematography outstanding!
