The team is serving as security contractors to the CIA in Libya at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi. So when the embassy is attacked by local militia, the team springs into action.
But the team's efforts to protect the Americans in danger at the compound are stopped by the Chief (David Costabile) who tells the team that it's not their place. But the rub is that no one is helping those in the embassy, despite desperate pleas to the US State Department for assistance. Knowing that lives are at risk, the secret soldiers of Benghazi take it upon themselves to do the right thing, risk their own lives and their jobs to save others.13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi joined theaters already playing other fine films including The Revenant, Concussion, The Hateful Eight and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
