Boaz returns to his family's home outside of Boston after three years in the military, including a long tour in Iraq. The community regards him a hero. But his younger brother Levi, now 17, doesn't know what to think or feel about him. Levi has never felt close to his brother, and Boaz's decision to join the Marines when he graduated from high school further separates them.
