Billy, a 19-year-old kid, joined the American invasion in Iraq, and witnessed all kinds of horrible things in war. And now, in the middle of the tour, the big honchos are bringing him back to the States for a parade, a celebration of a lie. They claim the boy and his team are real heroes, victorious soldiers that succeeded in bringing democracy to this third-world Middle-Eastern country. However, that's pretty far from the truth. Through flashbacks, the narrative shows us what really took place in that eventful day. The US citizens think that war can be justified and think of it as something good and necessary. And only the men who've been through it despise every single thing about it.
