Dismayed by public indifference towards veterans and humiliated by his inability to fulfill his dream of being a Hollywood star or provide for family, Eddie is desperate and starts to rob banks.

“…first-time writer-director Nathan Morlando shows commendable focus (even Cox dials it down), and his movie's modest aspirations nicely reflect the condition in which Boyd, his damaged charisma spent, finally thrives.” – Village Voice
“Morlando, in his debut feature, shows some skill behind the camera. The film looks good for an independent, with a cold grey palette, good looking cinematography, and a solid score by Max Richter (Perfect Sense).” – DVD Verdict
