Summary
Jerry served in the first Gulf War. When he is later deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq, Jerry was an older man, a father of three and embittered by broken promises and unfulfilled desired. When Jerry returns from Iraq he has been transformed by horrors that he cannot forget. He lives a life of poverty, his children afraid of him and his wife, Nora, unsympathetic and unhappy. When Jerry discovers that Nora has betrayed him, his anger and despair drive him to commit an act so heinous and irreversible that nothing he has experienced in combat could have prepared him.
