By Robert Myers. Two night shift operators fly a drone from a trailer in the American desert. He's a much-decorated fighter pilot from rural Georgia, who has come out of retirement to make ends meet. She is a superstar gamer from New Jersey, who's just been recruited to the job of sensor.
They are working for a private corporation in New Mexico but are supervised by an imposing female Captain at a military base in Virginia, who gives them orders to stake out a family in South Waziristan.
As they circle their target, the sixty plus pilot and the twenty year old female sensor argue about music, fighting and flying.
