In a rustbelt town south of Chicago, three generations of Konick men attempt to assemble lives lived in the shadows of war. Bruno Konick is the patriarch, haunted by his actions during the World War II liberation of Dachau. His middle-aged sons, Bruce and Len, struggle for happiness while living with the disfiguring traumas of combat in Southeast Asia. Bruce's son, Luke, is torn between the influences of father and grandfather, a precarious bridge between the aftershocks of violence and valor.
