Plot Summary

The story revolves around three soldiers - Colee, TK and Cheever - who return from the war after suffering injuries and learn that life has moved on without them. They end up on an unexpected road trip across the U.S., with Colee on a mission to bring her boyfriend's guitar back to his family because he saved her life, TK seeking confidence to face his wife after a shrapnel injury that threatens his sexual function and middle-aged Cheever planning to hit the casinos in a desperate effort to pay for his son's college tuition.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Colee talks of how T.K. and his fiancée should experiment sexually, 'by having another man with her while T.K. watches'. Later on in the film, Cheaver (accidentally) puts himself in exactly that position (having sex with a woman just as her husband enters the room). See more »

Quotes [T.K. tells Cheaver and Colee to not talk about plane crashes when on a plane]
T.K. Poole: Don't talk about planes crashing when you're on a plane.
Colee Dunn: Why not?
T.K. Poole: It's basic common sense.
Fred Cheaver: It's the same reason that when you're on a cruise ship, they're not showing 'Titanic.' It scares people. Who wants to think about drunk pilots and mid-air collisions? Nothing you can do about it, anyway.
