After years of battle on the frontlines in Afghanistan, an American marine returns home to mend a broken relationship with his dying father. He carries with him the haunting memories of war and a promise he kept to a fallen brother in arms. He may never be able to make peace with what he has seen and done overseas, but if he can make amends with the last living member of his family, maybe a piece of what he once was will return to him.
