Now remember, no hugging...
This highly-rated film has the war in Iraq as backdrop, while set solidly on American soil. An injured non-com gets to serve out his last three months going to the relatives of soldiers killed in the war, to tell them of the death. He finds the job harrowing at first, even though he has an old hand to guide him. Things take a turn for the interesting when he starts becoming involved with the young widow of a deceased serviceman, which complicates his relationship with his boss.
