In the course of a single night Thomas must decide his future and make peace with his past. His brother Jake came back from the Army damaged and not himself, but like his father before him Thomas is expected to report in the morning and continue the family tradition. He is terrified of coming home like Jake, who is seen as a local hero, but is nothing like he used to be. Thomas must make peace with Jake and his future or change it. The story is told in the course of one night that like all graduation nights is full of the things you expected and even more that surprise you. A warm witty and touching look at growing up and making adult choices.
