The Tillman Story synopsis

The family of professional football player turned soldier Pat Tillman sets out to explore and uncover the real story behind their son's death in April 2004 when he was serving in Afghanistan. Tillman, killed not by the Taliban as had first been reported, but instead by friendly fire, left a million-dollar career to serve the United States. But, while searching for the truth, his family uncovers more than the real story -- they expose a shocking propagandistic military cover-up.
