Seventeen-year-old Mario promises he'll take care of his nine-year-old brother, Eddie, while their mother serves in the National Guard in Iraq and soon realizes that Eddie desperately needs help.
When seventeen-year-old Mario and ten-year-old Eddie's mother is sent to Iraq with her National Guard unit, the boys move in with their aunt, whose boyfriend, Denton, sexually abuses Eddie, which may lead to the boys being split up in different foster homes while Mario tries to keep his brother safe.
