"You have no idea what it means not to be able to fire back."
Master Corporal Cameron Venniger has returned home to Winnipeg after serving with the UN in Croatia. Bit by bit, he and his wife Alexa find themselves caught in a funnel of anger and violence. Unable to confront the genocidal horrors they witnessed and were helpless to prevent, Cameron and his trench buddy Dean rush down a path of self-destruction. Alexa struggles to understand what has happened to Cameron and fights to reclaim him while trying to stay out of the reach of his fury.
