Sgt. Brandon King (Phillippe) is a decorated Iraq War veteran who has served his tour of duty and country with pride. After returning to his hometown in Texas after his tour of duty is over, Brandon is faced with all the difficulties a soldier faces when resuming civilian life. Just when he is beginning to feel more comfortable at home than he was on the battlefield, Sgt.
