"Hogs in the Sand" is the deeply personal, epic journey of an A-10 fighter pilot in Operation Desert Storm. It chronicles his life as he prepares for battle and then fights an increasingly-terrifying war, all the while attempting to win over a woman and keep control of his internal demons. This lyrical, intense narrative virtually straps you into the cockpit to fly combat missions, while you gain an unprecedented understanding of the mind of a modern combat pilot.
