When Jimmy Vandenberg leaves the Ford factory in Detroit and volunteers to serve in the Vietnam War, he wants to prove himself a man. But after the war, Jimmy returns to a country more humiliated than grateful and feels abandoned by those he served.
Years later, Jimmy is intoxicated by the Trump message ‘Make America Great Again’ but a chance visit from the son of a fallen comrade forces him to question his convictions.
