RED TAILS is an exciting and emotional action-packed film that tells the story of everyday heroes rising above extraordinary challenges. Inspired by the heroics and valor of the first all-African American aerial combat unit, the film follows the Tuskegee Airmen as they shatter all doubts and prejudices with excellence in the air and on the ground.

Under the direction of Anthony Hemingway (Treme, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, True Blood), Red Tails uses the historic backdrop of World War II to tell the story of a cast of men, drawn from many walks of life, who were united in their desire to fight for their country against a daunting enemy.

The men’s camaraderie, courage and exceptional skills create a rousing adventure as the Red Tails fight the perils facing the Allied forces in the European theater. Meanwhile, in the halls of the Pentagon, one man fights so that the men under his charge are afforded the opportunity to prove their mettle in war.
