It's Veteran's Day and army lieutenant Dale Stillman is at the ceremony held in his town. He's a Gulf War veteran and a decorated war hero, who's been suffering from serious PTSD since the war and can't get a job. After the ceremony he sees three of his squadmates. They're glad to see one another and they ask him to join them for a drink at a bar. However, when Dale arrives at this reunion, there's no one there except for the bartender and two friendly laughing drinking buddies Wally and Gus, who also know Dale. He decides to wait for his comrades, but as the time passes he begins suffering from flashbacks that eventually turn into a disturbing waking dream. He's reliving the night when he saved one of his squadmates, but then got captured by the Iraqis, when he went to get some help. They threw him in a dungeon, where he was psychologically tortured and threatened by a sadistic interrogator. However, when Dale's teammates finally show up at the bar, he's in for a rude awakening.
