Lone Survivor tells the true story of the failed mission 'Operation Red Wings' in Afghanistan. Marcus Luttrell and his team set out to capture or kill notorious Al Qaeda leader Ahmad Shahd, in late June 2005. After running into mountain herders and capturing them, they were left with no choice but to follow their rules of engagement or be imprisoned. Now Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
