FULL CONTACT is a film about a UAV pilot who takes out targets in the Afghan/Pakistani border area while sitting in the Creech Air Force Base in the Nevada desert, just outside of Las Vegas. Both at work and in his private life, Ivan feels the need to be in control. Which is why he is a lonely character, because to surrender to love would mean giving up the control he craves.
