The warrior: Lt. Jordan O'Neil (Demi Moore), the first woman recruited to the U.S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team, a fictional version of the Navy SEALs.
What she's fighting for: O'Neil fights battles on multiple fronts. She fights for women to be recognized as equals in the military. She fights her physical and mental limits to survive a hellish boot camp run by a brutal master chief (Viggo Mortensen). She fights a smear campaign run by a corrupt senator. And she fights Libyan forces to rescue an injured officer.
