The Covenant

In 2018 amidst the War in Afghanistan, U.S Special Forces Sergeant John Kinley leads a team of highly trained soldiers who travel around searching for secret Taliban weapons bunkers. John brings a newly assigned interpreter, Ahmed, along for a new job and when Ahmed saves the crew from an upcoming roadside ambush he proves to be loyal. When the next weapons raid goes horribly wrong, Ahmed is left to care for and help return John to the airbase by carrying the injured sergeant across miles of grueling terrain, all while the Taliban are hot on their trail. When John is successfully returned home and on the mend he discovers that Ahmed has been in hiding with his wife and child as they are now on the Taliban’s most wanted list. This haunts John to the point of putting his life on the line once again to go back to Afghanistan and get his friend out of there.
