At a training facility outside Riga, Latvia, a group of new Special Forces recruits prepare for a selection process that will determine their professional future. Tested to the limits both physically and mentally, not all of them will make it through without quitting, but those that do, will become Latvia’s elite soldiers.

Formed in the early nineties, just after the country won its independence, the Latvian Special Forces, like those in other countries, are considered elite soldiers. Their operations include counter-terrorism, search and rescue, sea landings, underwater missions, attack and detention, and airborne operations
