Set in the near future, DRONE follows one morning in the life of a military
Drone Operator, played by EWEN BREMNER (Trainspotting, Match Point
and Black Hawk Down). Drone warfare has now become privatised and he
works a 9 to 5 shift for a Drone company. One morning he is called in to do
an 'early shift' and carry out a Drone mission on his own for the first time.
Alone in the office, whilst he waits for his mission to go live he surfs the
internet and plays solitaire like any other bored office worker. But his isolation
makes him think for the first time about what he must do and the lethal
hellfire missile he has to unleash at the touch of his joy stick on a suspect
he's never seen before, thousands of miles away from him - across the
other side of the world
