When British soldier Alex Fisher returns home from his tour in Bosnia, heâ€™s plagued by blackouts, recurring nightmares, and uncontrollable acts of violence. Escaping to Mexico, he sets off on a globetrotting tour in an attempt to distance himself from the demons in his head. A chance meeting with a mysterious woman introduces Fisher to a far more passionateâ€”and far more dangerousâ€”life. With his grip on reality slipping, Fisherâ€™s demons return in full force, awakening a flood of suppressed memories. As he attempts to sort through his complicated and half-remembered past, Fisher discovers that the truth is harder to accept than the lies.
