In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Doc (Steve Carell) re-unites with ex-Marines Sal (Bryan Cranston) and Mueller (Laurence Fishburne) on a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forego burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, they reminisce and come to terms with shared experiences, as they wrestle with the pangs of war both past and present.
