Drama based on the real experiences of US Army Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl. As the number of casualties mounts in Iraq in the spring of 2004, Strobl (Kevin Bacon) volunteers to escort the body of a 19-year-old Marine, Lance Corporal Chance Phelps, back to his hometown in Wyoming. As he travels across America, Strobl observes firsthand the military rituals undertaken by the US Army to honour its war dead, sees how hundreds of people are affected by Phelps' death, and embarks on a soul-searching inner journey of his own.
