SYNOPSIS
Cassandra, a low-ranked soldier hiding in a safe house in neutral territory, is only days away from her extraction date. But when two soldiers from her former unit request sanctuary, Cassandra is confronted with the possibility of losing her only way out. In a world where the shade of your uniform outranks your experience and skill, DRAPETOMANIA questions allyship, privilege, and security as all of the soldiers are confronted with the decision to fight or die.
