Nearing the end of their tour of Iraq, four American soldiers are sent on one last humanitarian mission that sees them ambushed, taking heavy losses, with the troops suffering physical and psychological injuries. Samuel L. Jackson stars as Will Mars, a doctor tormented by the lives he could not save, returning home to a son who now hates him for not going and a wife who is struggling to understand him. Living in the same town, driver Vanessa Price (Jessica Biel) has lost her right hand in the ambush and now fins herself having to face the emotional and physical readjustment that her wounds carry. Army specialist Curtis Jackson is haunted by the killing of an Iraqi woman and unable to cope with the rage inside when he returns home to his friends. Finally, Brian Presley is the combat soldier whose best friend dies in his arms, and who ultimately feels compelled to go back to war and support his comrades in their fight. For all, coming home is the real battle.
