  • In Nairobi, a gathering of dangerous terrorists is tracked by a daring local operative (Abdi).
  • In London, military leaders (Mirren and Rickman – in his last on-screen role) urge reluctant politicians to authorise action.
  • In Texas, a team of drone ‘pilots’ wait nervously to execute an attack that has considerable potential for collateral damage.
