After a tour in Iraq, decorated hero Sgt. Brandon King (Ryan Phillippe) returns home to his small Texas town and tries to readjust to civilian life. But when he's called up again as part of the military's controversial stop-loss program, he decides to go AWOL. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum play Brandon's war buddies, and Timothy Olyphant is his stern commanding officer in this poignant antiwar drama from director Kimberly Peirce.
