Led to believe his abusive grandfather is responsible for his sister’s recent death, Gabriel (26) returns to his humble home in rural New Mexico. Yearning to protect his family, he swears to secretly kill his grandfather, yet at the moment of truth his plan is foiled and they are forced to spend the day together. The two men, both war veterans, begin speaking about their distinct yet similar traumatic experiences.
