Based on the film of the same name that won Best Documentary at Tribeca in 2013, Dan Krauss returns as director of the narrative version of the story he first brought to the screen. Set in 2010, Private Andrew Briggman (Nat Wolff) is an ambitious infantryman recently sent to Afghanistan. He strives to stand out among the frequently wild but seemingly loveable and loyal brothers of his platoon. When the leader of their group is suddenly replaced, Andrew finds inspiration in the arrival of a new officer in charge, an implacable yet clearly perceptive soldier (Alexander Skarsgård) who inspires with a confident but often frightening air. As Briggman attempts to find his place as a second-in-command, he senses that his team is not working cohesively for the greater good and, instead, nefarious things might be happening just under his nose. Not wanting to appear paranoid or defying the orders of his superior, Briggman must choose between reporting his suspicions to authorities—putting his own life immediately in danger—or silently participating in what might be truly shocking crimes.

In The Kill Team, Krauss expertly directs a talented group of actors who authentically and faithfully portray these real-life figures involved with the infamous Maywand District Murders.
