A GLIMPSE OF HELL tells the troubling true story behind one of the most tragic losses of life aboard a Naval ship during peace time. On April 19, 1989, an explosion rocked Turret Two of the USS Iowa, killing 47 officers in the process. Thrown into a state of utter turmoil, the Navy embarked on an investigation that vaguely pointed to one officer, GMG2 Clay Hartwig (Dashiell Eaves). Implicated by Captain Fred Moosally (James Caan), Hartwig was deemed the jealous homosexual lover of GMG2 Kendall Truitt (Jamie Harrold). Moosally believed the explosion to be a suicidal love letter, designed to murder both men in the process. Lieutenant Dan Meyer (Robert Sean Leonard) wasn't so sure of this explanation, however. Convinced that Hartwig would never commit such a horrific action, he began his own investigation, which gradually uncovered the shocking truth. Filmed with great fervor by cinematographer-turned-director Mikael Salomon (HARD RAIN, A FAR OFF PLACE), A GLIMPSE OF HELL features impassioned lead performances by Caan and Leonard.
