From the producer of "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Day After Tomorrow" comes a beautifully written, and emotional buddy movie - which combines the sentiment of "Good Will Hunting" with the razor-sharp wit of "Thank You for not Smoking".
Derek Montgomery has been to hell and back. He's just returned from active service, where he sustained shrapnel injuries to his eyes and legs. Instead of sipping beers and working his way through rehab for the remaining three months of his Army contract, though, Derek is reassigned to Casualty Notification - and the serious task of informing the relatives of soldiers killed in action. As a returning injured war hero, Derek can't believe he?s the one called on to do this demanding job. But in the internet age of touch-a-button information and on-the-ground war-reporting, it is vital the task is done quickly and effectively. The last thing the US Army wants is for a mother to hear about the fate of her only son on CNN. But it gets worse for Derek...
