Sebastien Ranes has drifted aimlessly since graduating from high school six months ago. Down on his luck, the nineteen-year-old is recovering from pneumonia, working a dead-end job, and living in a shabby makeshift bedroom in the basement of his mother and stepfather’s home.
Looking to escape his lousy situation, Sebastien robs a local grocery store and makes off with $4,800 — but not without the store’s security cameras spotting him. Driven to a state of panic, and out of control, Sebastien is hit by a drunk driver. Pulled from the wreckage by a Marine, Sebastien is offered a ride home — and a way out of Alaska.
The Marine Corps shows Sebastien another world — of abuse and authority, of war and compassion, of lust and consequences — and by the time he returns home, he’ll be forever changed.
