Synopsis: Based on actual events, Pathfinders finally reveals the untold story of a covert military mission, concealed for nearly 70 years.
On June 5, 1944, just prior to the World War II D-Day invasion of Normandy, a small band of elite American paratroopers – a rough-and-ready mix of renegades abruptly recruited from various military units and provided with no special training – drop behind enemy lines … and into the midst of the German infantry.
Unprepared, unsupported, out-numbered and racing against the clock, this group of strangers’ sole duty is to remain alive long enough to locate a strategic site and set up the top-secret navigational equipment needed to guide the tactical assault. Failure means the lives of thousands of fellow soldiers and, perhaps, the outcome of the war itself.
It’s an unmitigated violation of all the rules of warfare and only a miracle will lead them to victory …
Starring Michael Conner Humphreys (Forest Gump) and Christopher Serrone (Goodfellas).
