Lance Corporal Hunt discovers the body of his friend and fellow Marine who has killed himself while standing watch. Unanchored, he wrestles with conflicting feelings about the suicide, compounded by his own depression, the ever-present violence of war, the miserliness of the Corps when it comes to suicide, and his own sense of purpose. In the end, Hunt finds himself in his own personal battle with the very thing that killed his buddy.
