“Breaking” is based on a true story that takes place in 2017 Atlanta, Georgia: Brian Brown-Easley (John Boyega) is an honorably discharged Marine who fought for his country in Iraq. After his return to civilian life, however, this only took negative turns.
Brian’s wife Cassandra (Olivia Washington) has left him and he rarely sees his young daughter (London Covington). In addition, he can barely pay the rent for his room in a seedy motel. He asks the Veterans Administration for financial help to avoid ending up on the streets, but is rudely turned away.
He sees only one option: Brian goes into a bank, hands the teller a note saying he has a bomb on him, and lets all the customers and employees go except for two (Nicole Beharie, Selenis Leyva). . What his hostages are only now finding out: the man doesn’t want any money at all, he just wants to show the public that the state simply lets men like him down…
