A Vietnam War veteran loses his son who was fighting in Iraq. He turns to his military friends to help bury his son, men he hasn’t seen in years. When the truth behind the death of his son is revealed, these old friends must face their own pasts as well. As they embark on this journey together, the men have the chance to once again become friends as they share war memories, talk about the failures of the Iraqi War, reminice about the fun they had when they were younger, and talk about the downsides of aging. Watch as these three men find the humor in even the toughest of situations.
