A Second Knock at the Door

Synopsis: In the works for over two years, A Second Knock at the Door offers a rare glimpse into the lives of military families dealing with the loss of loved ones to friendly fire. Through interviews and investigative reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, this documentary explores several key incidents in which the families of the fallen were forced to embark on a quest for the truth after the Army attempted to bury the true cause of death within the 'fog of war.'

- Any word from Philadelphia?

Uh, yeah, man. They're not looking

to syndicate us just now.

Maybe next year

if our numbers come up.

You know this is the worst

damn market I've ever worked in.

Night, Tom.

My name is Tom DiMartino.

I am producer and engineer

for "The Night Shift"

with Charlie Crowe on Z104.

Charlie got this slot

in the evenings

and needed

a producer/engineer person,

you know, somebody

to screen calls.

And so he said, "Hey, you know,

you've got some experience.

Would you be willing

to do this for me?"

You know,

I was game at the time.

Seemed like

a pretty good ole boy.

Last time I talked to him, anyway.

Like I said,

he leaves a good tip.

How many times

did he come in here?

Before or after 4:00?

That was a good show, Charlie.

Wish my programmers

thought so.

If they ever can your ass

over at that radio station,

you can come work for me.

No offense, Sparky, but...

I think I'd rather suck the end

of a double-barreled shotgun.

Hey there, kiddo.

What's the word?


- How's Dr. Robert?

- He's fine, I'm fine.

Thanks for asking.

Maid's day off again?

Um, what are you doing?

- Checking your fridge.

- Why?

To see if you have anything healthy

to feed my son with.

Hey, that's still good.

It's expired.

You know, I'm perfectly capable

of taking care of our son.

- I don't like him eating junk food.

- Yeah, so we'll go out.

I don't like him

eating fast food either.

All right, then I'll have the butler

whip us up something.

Don't be cute, Charlie.

This is serious.

Can't I be cute and serious?

Don't you think you should stop

wearing that?

It's confusing Preston.

Well, maybe I don't like

throwing things away.


What about you, huh?

Is it better to throw something out

after you're tired of it?
