A young woman (Kristen Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots, but ends up as a rookie guard at a hostile army base. When she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (A Separation's Payman Maadi), both of their worlds are forever shifted.
