Tracing the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican family, the play focuses on 19-year-old Elliot, a recently anointed hometown hero who returns from Iraq with a leg injury and a difficult question: will he go back to war a second time? While on leave, Elliot learns the stories of his father and grandfather who served in Korea and Vietnam before him.
