Synopsis

Two brothers living under the burden of expectation on a collision course with the shadows of a tragic past...

It’s the summer after graduation. His brother is home from the Corps, fresh out of Afghanistan, and only three short months remain until Chase can sign his own Marine enlistment contract. It was supposed to be great. It’s turning into a slow hell.

His girlfriend dumps him. He’s shoveling horse manure to make a buck after giving up his job for Danny, and his parents won’t drop their college campaign. The worst is Danny’s descent into self-destruction—fighting, drinking, and run-ins with the law. All Chase's attempts to connect with his brother lead only to more frustration.

As Chase struggles to understand Danny, he finds an unlikely ally in Olga Gutierrez, the girl he’s been trying to ignore for the past five years. However, when a final betrayal threatens to destroy the brothers’ relationship forever and exposes the truth—a long-kept secret about Olga’s own brother’s death in Iraq—Chase will come to question everything he once thought he knew about Danny and himself.
