Fellow soldier Jacob Multer is a strong Christian, while Marks new roommate, Kurt Talagan, has been around the block more than once. Kurt gives Mark his first taste of smoking dope, and its a move that sends Marks life spiraling out of control. Jacob sees the destruction happening and wants to help, but he doesnt know howother than praying for Mark. Unfortunately, Mark moves deeper into a world of addiction and confusion.
When Mark sustains severe injuries after a drunken fall, the army finds out about his drug use and forces him to start seeing a counselor. But his demons are larger than he thought, and he cant quit the lifestyle hes grown accustomed to. Its only when he reconnects with Jacob again that he hears the powerful message of the Gospel and comes to understand that Jesus may be the answer to escaping his messed up life.
