In the Valley of Elah is a thought-provoking drama inspired by true events from acclaimed writer-director Paul Haggis and stars three Oscar-winning actors Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron and Susan Sarandon.

On his first weekend back after serving in Iraq, Mike Deerfield (Jonathan Tucker) goes missing and is reported AWOL.  When Hank Deerfield (Tommy Lee Jones), a former military MP and his wife Joan (Susan Sarandon) get the phone call with the disturbing news, Hank sets out to search for their son.  Emily Sanders (Charlize Theron), a New Mexico police detective in the jurisdiction where Mike was last seen, reluctantly helps him in his search.

As the evidence grows, her missing person's case begins to look more and more like foul play, and soon Sanders finds herself in a fight with the military brass as she and Hank struggle to keep control of the investigation.  But when the truth about Mike's time in Iraq finally begins to emerge, Hanks entire world is challenged and he's forced to re-evaluate long-held beliefs to solve the mystery behind his son's disappearance.
