Storyline

Stranded between the harsh Iraq desert and fifty miles from the closest U.S. camp, two ambush-surviving U.S. soldiers from different schools of thought for why they are fighting must rely on each other to fight the changing conditions, fight the insurgent push, and eventually fight themselves to get back alive.
