Sometimes heroism is found in the most unlikely places. Gritty, bloody and fast-paced, Fighting Blind plunges you into the day-to-day reality of a war zone, where life is cheap and the enemy is almost impossible to pick. After years in the NSW SWAT team and counter-terrorism units, Shane is an elite operator. As he flies into the chaos of Baghdad, he's on deployment to the US Department of Defense as a commando trainer to the post-Saddam Iraqi police force. Life is relentless, dangerous and full-on. In between Blackhawk missions and the threat of rogue commandos, he and his men battle rugged surroundings, 50 degree plus heat and scenarios where 30 seconds seems like a lifetime. Focused on being an effective fighting-machine, Shane has no time to think about anything other than survival, until he meets an elderly Iraqi man, known as the Professor. Their brief encounter proves life-changing.
