Charlie returns home from Afghanistan to discover that his battles are just beginning.

Ever since the death of his best friend, Charlie can hardly look in the mirror. He feels alienated from himself, and suddenly, things that used to feel simple seem unexplainably complicated. The weight of his past presses heavily on his soul. He wonders if everything that he did—letting his best friend enlist, deciding to enlist with him, being unable to talk about the war after they got home—all somehow led to his best friend’s suicide.

As time moves on, Charlie keeps one foot in the past and one in the present. He feels himself getting stretched thinner and thinner. The weight on him only piles up, and whatever clarity he has about his life seems to only get more and more foggy. He talks to everyone he can, trying to get answers about why his best friend, who once seemed so happy, decided to die. It’s a puzzle that he tries to solve like a mystery, trying to piece together parts of his friend’s past, seeking a simple answer that’ll make everything seem rational. He believes that then, he’ll be okay. Then, he’ll move on. However, for every answer, there seem to be ten more questions.
