This fascinating film from Atlanta filmmaker Cindy Abel follows Colonel Pat Thompson, a decorated army nurse, only two years away from retirement. She was asked to preside over the military review board that eventually dismissed Colonel Margarethe (Grethe) Cammermeyer for admitting she was a lesbian. Although Thompson had served her country with distinction for over 30 years — from conflict zones in Central America to working inside the Pentagon — that appointment was perhaps the hardest. In that moment, she had to protect her own life secret: that she too was a lesbian and living privately with her life partner Barbara Brass for many years.
