Ready For War follows three soldiers with green cards who are in different stages of the process. One is stuck in Tijuana trying to get back to his family. Another is being detained by ICE and fighting deportation. The last subject has been brought into the drug cartel in Ciudad Juárez.

Drake is among a group of executive producers that includes his manager Adel “Future” Nur, the film’s creators Andrew Renzi and Nick Boak, and Showtime’s Vinnie Malhotra, among others. Anthony Gonzales and Jason Shrier will serve as producers.

Drizzy has previously served as an executive producer on projects such as the Vince Carter documentary The Carter Effect and HBO’s new drama Euphoria, which premieres June 16.
