An injured U.S. soldier, Sgt. Will Montgomery (Ben Foster), is paired up with by-the-book Capt. Tony Stone (Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson) to notify families of killed soldiers -- a job that bonds them as they debate different views on serving America. At odds at first, the two find common ground while facing life's variety of battles.
