In 1946, into a suspicious and isolated community comes James Mercer, employed in the demolition of gun platforms. He befriends the wife and daughter of Lynch, a soldier soon to be released from the military. Lynch's return threatens violence; and in a place where nothing has changed for decades, where peacetime feels no different than wartime, Mercer finds himself powerless to prevent events quickening to their violent and unexpected conclusion.
