Note from Hidden Heroes: Shooter is a thriller that centers on a veteran. As such, there may be some war scenes or war-related content. If you or your care recipient is triggered by these types of shows, we ask that you let us know before the premiere party. We want to ensure that this will be an exciting event for the whole family, and would not want any premiere party participant to feel uncomfortable.
