When Stanley (John Cusack) hears that
his wife and mother of his children, Grace Phillips is killed in
Iraq severing her country, his perfect life is shattered and now he
must somehow inform his daughters of the news.
Stanley himself was once a military man
until poor eyesight ended his career and although he has joined the
civilian army of employees, he remained a supporter of the U.S. war
effort, proud of his wife's choice to serve... until her passing.
Stricken by grief and loss, Stanley
can't find the words to break the news to his serious, hyper
vigilant 12-year-old daughter, Heidi (Shélan O'Keefe) or her more
bubbly 8-year-old sister, Dawn (Gracie Bednarczyk). He starts to
stall and decides to go on a road trip with them which opens up a
plethora of emotions in this gripping drama. It's a journey of how a
family is brought closer after a horrendous incident.
Featuring some great video and audio
quality, apart from the feature, the special features are quite
in-depth and give you a true insight into the motivations and
feelings behind this thorough drama movie.
