Johnny, the local hero, has been flying bombing missions on the war Over There. When he suddenly returns home, broken, a shadow of his former self, people want to know the reason why.
Piece by piece, his story emerges through the eyes of his younger sister, Lin, who's 14 (almost) and a bit of a punk. Bored with school and village life, her humdrum world is overturned when her brother sets up an anti-war protest in the local square that splits the community.
