A Marine narrowly escapes death to return to a place as foreign and confusing as Iraq. When no one greets him at the airport, he sets out for the wilderness. But the people he meets start to form a new sense of home. Now he has everything to lose. Five peoples' fates become entwined when a Marine (Fran Kranz) returns on furlough from Iraq. When no one greets him at the airport, he sets out to look for his father (Whip Hubley) on the wild Northwest coast. His journey becomes harder and harder as it intersects with his un-met step-mother, a bitter Gulf War One veteran, and the British stewardess from his connection home (Elize du Toit). As each strays further from his everyday life and a body washes up on the beach, their fates become bound inextricably together. Almost impossibly, a newfound sense of belonging is forged and, finally, the Marine has something to come back to. Now he must return to the real and present war.
