Seth is a young Marine serving during wartime. Nicholas is his civilian husband who waits back home. In addition to the strain on their relationship caused by distance and absence, they must hide... More > their love for one another behind code words and secret identities because of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy barring gays and lesbians from serving openly in the United States military. Temptations also weaken their resolve. Jonas, another young gay Marine in Seth’s unit just coming to terms with his identity, forms an intense bond with Seth overseas. Tyson, a former Army soldier, now works alongside Nicholas. When Seth returns home for leave with Jonas at his side, and post-traumatic stress following him from the battlefield, old relationships are tested, and new ones bloom.
