Luis and Ronald, two best friends from LA, film their last 36 hours before shipping off to Afghanistan.

Luis wants to be a filmmaker and Ronald wants to travel the world and raise a family. With Luis' video camera, they capture their friends, family members and favourite places - to remember who they are and where they come from. In their darkest hour, they document the final moments of their journey home, and soon realise that their dreams and promises of a new life mean nothing in a place called War.
