Overview
Mike Deerfield returns to the U.S. after his tour of duty in Iraq and abruptly goes missing. His father Hank (Jones), a spit-and-polish ex-MP from the Vietnam era, goes looking for him. What he finds goes to the heart of American combat experiences in the Iraqi conflict. Academy Award®-winning Crash filmmaker Paul Haggis teams with Oscar®-winning* actors Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron and Susan Sarandon in a probing and powerful look at a nation and the young soldiers it send into battle. Hank's quest lays bare a tangled web of cover-up, murder, mystery and profound revelation about the personal cost of war.

* Haggis: Best Picture (Producer) and Original Screenplay (with Bobby Moresco) for Crash (2005). Jones: Best Supporting Actor for The Fugitive (1993). Theron: Best Actress for Monster (2003). Sarandon: Best Actress for Dead Man Walking (1995).
