After a victory in Iraq, nineteen-year-old private Billy Lynn comes home for a few days to participate in a parade. He and his friends from Squad Bravo are heroes in the eyes of American civilians, but do they perceive themselves in the same way? Oscar-winning Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Life of Pi) used the new Magi technology, shooting at the ultra-high frame rate of 120fps for the very first time in film history, which enabled him to uniquely depict the atmosphere of war.
