An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his lifeuntil he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah.

But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.
