WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

How can you tell an unbiased story when you get dangerously close to your subject? Posing as a researcher, Wendy, a Hollywood screenwriter, attempts to infiltrate an army medical center in the hopes of interviewing injured Iraqi war veterans for her next film. Barring her entrance is Captain Gray Whitrock, an unyielding patriot who, even after losing his foot in the war, returned for a second tour of duty. Through Wendy's interactions with Gray and his pregnant wife, Lydia, the convictions of all three are called into question, as they struggle with love, duty, honor and sacrifice in a world of perpetual conflict, both at home and abroad.
