Will (Ben Foster) is spending the last three months of his military service in a hospital to recover from his injuries suffered in an armed conflict in Iraq. The joyous expectation of his return home shatters when he learns that his fiancée is leaving him. Moreover, the army assigns him to a unit which informs families that their relatives died in the war. Nevertheless, this is also where Will meets Captain Tony (Woody Harrelson), who seems to be his only hope to heal and live a normal life.
