Eleven days

A haunting narrative about a mother's bond with her son; about life choices; about the military, war, and service to one's country. Sara's son Jason is missing from a Special Operations Forces mission undertaken on the same night as the Bin Laden raid. As Sara waits for news, in a series of flashbacks we learn about Jason's absentee father, while through letters home from his training and early missions, we get a picture of Jason as a strong, compassionate leader who is wise beyond his years and modest about his abilities. Those exceptional abilities give Jason the chance to participate in a wholly different level of assignment, the most important and dangerous of his career.

  • "ELEVEN DAYS is, at its heart, the story of a mother and a son. It begins in May 2011: Sara's son Jason has been missing for nine days in the aftermath of a special operations forces mission. Out of devotion to him, Sara - smart, modest, tough-minded - has made herself knowledgeable about things military, but she knows nothing more about her son's disappearance than the press corps camped out in her driveway. But this is also the story of the current generation of special operations forces and what drives them. Jason is brought up by his mother in a small town in Pennsylvania away from the complications of Washington where Sarah met his father, a man who claimed to have been a writer but who died, according to 'insiders,' helping to make the country safer. Jason is an extraordinary boy who decides, on 9/11, to forego his mother's ambitions for Harvard in favour of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, after which he enters into the toughest military training in the world: for the U.S. Naval Special Warfare's Navy SEAL Teams. Through letters Jason wrote his mother while training, we see him becoming a strong, compassionate leader. But his fate will be determined by events that fall outside the sphere of his training, and far outside the strong embrace of his mother's love."@en
