Event Navigation

Based on the true experiences of Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl.  A profoundly emotional look at the military rituals taken to honor its war dead, as represented by a fallen Marine killed in Iraq, Lance Corporal Chance Phelps.  Working as a strategic analyst at Marine Corps Base Quantico (VA), Lt. Col. Strobl (Kevin Bacon) learns that Phelps had once lived in his hometown, and volunteers to escort the body to its final resting place in Wyoming.  He encounters hundreds of people affected by Chance’s death, a vast majority of whom never knew him.  Arriving in Wyoming, Lt. Col. Strobl encounters Chance’s gracious family and friends, and discovers an extraordinary outpouring of community support. (90 min.)
