The General's Daughter

DOWN & DIRTY:
Drama: Assigned to look into the murder of an Army captain, two military investigators uncover a scandal that points to many suspects and threatens to reveal disturbing secrets.

NITTY GRITTY:
A murder has been committed and warrant officer Paul Brenner (JOHN TRAVOLTA), an investigator for the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID), is called in to work the case.

Something of a soldier/cop, Brenner has the power to arrest anyone in the military, no matter their rank, and immediately sets out gathering evidence.

It seems that Captain Elisabeth Campbell (LESLIE STEFANSON), a rising military star and specialist in Psychological Operations, was found dead and bound naked in the middle of a training field.

The base's Provost Marshal, Colonel William Kent (TIMOTHY HUTTON), has called in his old buddy, Brenner, to investigate the case. Brenner discovers that the victim's father is retiring three-star general Joe Campbell (JAMES CROMWELL), his former commanding officer and potential Vice Presidential candidate. The General is willing to cooperate, but both he and his right-hand man, Colonel George Fowler (CLARENCE WILLIAMS III), want Brenner to do things the Army way.

Brenner has only thirty-six hours before the FBI will arrive and take over the case. To complicate matters even further, Brenner discovers that the CID rape investigator assigned to the case is Sarah Sunhill (MADELEINE STOWE), with whom he was romantically involved in the past.

They begin investigating the case and interview Elisabeth's former psychiatrist Colonel Donald Slesinger (JOHN BEASLEY), they soon uncover a scandal that may rock the base and indict any number of suspects.

THE ENDING:
They discover that Captain Campbell was raped by several soldiers while she was attending West Point military academy. Her father, the general, was informed and decided to cover up the crime for the good of the Army. His daughter has never forgiven him for his betrayal.

She has Colonel Robert Moore (JAMES WOODS) stake her naked to the ground and then call her father and play a tape. Her father arrives and sees a scene that is identical to the rape at West Point. He leaves her staked to the ground.

Brenner discovers that Kent is the killer. He went to Elisabeth after her father left and strangled her. Kent tries to kill Brenner and Sunhill with a land mine, but it only kills Kent.

Brenner takes his findings to General and the General asks him to drop the case, because of the scandal. Brenner refuses and says he will file charges to have the General court-martialed.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The U.S. military. Don't ask, don't tell, don't ruin my career.
