Follows "Swoff," a third-generation Marine enlistee, from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle and a hundred-pound ruck on his back through the Middle East deserts.

Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don't understand, against an enemy they can't see, for a cause they don't fully understand. Sergeant Sykes, a Marine lifer, heads up the scout/sniper platoon, while Troy, Swoff's friend and mentor, is a die-hard member of STA - the elite Marine Unit

Une famille américaine ordinaire ayant perdu ses rêves et ses illusions. Décidée à changer de vie, April imagine un plan audacieux pour tout recommencer : quitter leur petite routine confortable dans le Connecticut pour aller vivre à Paris."
