LOGLINE: After returning from Afghanistan, a forsaken veteran plays a perilous game of chess with Death in order to see his brothers who died in battle, whether they were killed in combat or battling PTSD.


Specialist Antonio Joaquin Bloquear, or The Soldier, returns from Afghanistan to a land that murders the people he swore an oath to protect. He plays chess with Death in order to see his fallen companions. Over the course of the film, he comes across addiction, police brutality, and racism in a fantastical version of America. The Soldier also meets Esperanza in a loveless alleyway after saving her from an attack. With her by his side, the Soldier learns how to reconnect with other people on a journey to finally be with his family. Will the Soldier meet with his family or will he succumb to the deadly game he started?
