Sgt. Brandon King returns home to a hero's welcome in his small hometown in Texas, following a tour of duty with the Army in Iraq. He works hard to pick up the pieces of his old life, while struggling to deal with the after-effects of what he has seen and done in the combat zone. Life slowly begins to settle into a routine for King, but it is all suddenly thrown into chaos when King is recalled to active duty through the Army's stop-loss program. Unwilling to face another tour in Iraq, King, his mother and good friend, Michelle, go on the run, visiting wounded soldiers and other military men who chose to go AWOL rather than return to combat. King must ultimately decide if returning to war or running away is the answer he seeks.
