A Marine Story (2010)

Film details


Drama, gay and lebian. Having risen through the ranks to become a Major in the elite Marine Corps, Alex Everett has only ever known military life. However when the US Army's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy claims her as its latest victim, she is forced back to civilian life and the conservative home town she thought she'd left behind. Finding it hard to adjust, Alex gains a renewed sense of purpose in training local rebellious teen Saffron, getting her ready for military boot camp. As her life finally starts to make sense again with a new relationship on the horizon and a close familial bond forming with the orphaned Saffron, Alex's world is once more placed under threat.
