the challenge to reintegrate into life after deployment is made more difficult by her grave and persistent memories of Afghanistan.  She meets a mechanic (Manolo Cardona) who challenges her to open up further about her experiences.  When her life begins to stabilize and the bond with her son grows, news of another deployment threatens their fragile
balance.  She must now find a way to reconcile her duties as a mother and her obligations as a soldier.
