Told in the form of a monologue, "Grounded" tells the story of a pregnant pilot re-assigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas.

As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away. Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Julie Taymor.
