After a failed assassination attempt, a soldier finds himself stranded in the desert. Exposed to the elements, he must survive the dangers of the desert and battle the psychological and physical tolls of the treacherous conditions.
In the middle of the desert, an area filled with 33 million blast mines scattered everywhere, marine sniper Sergeant Mike Stevens is on a mission to locate and neutralize the leader of a terrorist cell. After three months and six days in the desert, one single moment of hesitation is enough to blow the entire mission, and now Sergeant Stevens is stranded in a hostile guerrilla territory all alone, and to make matters worse, with his left foot on an active mine. Against the harsh environment, without water, the sergeant must stay glued to the spot and use his Marine training, his resourcefulness and his perseverance for the next 52 hours until a convoy arrives in his area. Between the scalding heat of the day and the freezing cold of the night, if Sergeant Stevens wants to survive, he must fight not only the mighty forces of nature but also the greatest adversary of them all: himself.Written by

The radio can't be charged from the cell phone solar charger at 5V nor does it have a USB input.
The power switch does NOT illuminate nor act as a charge indicator , red charging/green charged.
This radio does not transmit on the frequency displayed later in the movie when he calls the rescue team.

In the last forty years, there have been eight thousand declared conflicts. There's thirty three million landmines buried in this area.
[smiles widely in disbelief, then chuckles]
Landmines? Oh I like it when you get optimistic, Mike.
[doesn't say anything but carefully scans the area with his eyes]
Okay, now you listen Mr. Wikipedia. You can find all kinds of stuff in the desert. Look at the condition that sign is in, okay, who knows ...

This film tells the story of a soldier who is sent to the desert for an assassination mission. He fails the mission, and is stranded in the desert. After he steps on a mine, he has to stay still and stay alive until a the rescue convoy arrives.
"Mine" tells a story of determination and a huge battle for survival. It is not easy to find the mental strength to live on in such harsh and threatening conditions. The plot tells an eventful and thrilling time in the desert, and I applaud his strong will to live. It would have been so easy to give up. I think the story is inspirational. I enjoyed the film.
