The world is a hard place for a returning war-vet. Lucky for Luther, he's been adopted by a couple of caring urbanites like Walter and Marjorie. A darkly comic examination of America's uneasy relationship with our veterans which begs the question who is more detached from reality: the soldier or those he is protecting?
