When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, heâ€™s
acutely aware of the dangers heâ€™ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife
Chloe and newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesnâ€™t think of himself as a hero,
but a healer.
However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a
war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak
household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to
discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart. Heâ€™s a stranger to his
baby girl, and his medical practice has downsized in his absence. Worse, he learns
a shocking secret that sends him into a downward spiral.
Grief-stricken, Mike makes decisions upon returning to Afghanistan which will
change his life forever. Itâ€™s not until he comes home for good that he grasps the
gravity of his actions, and realizes he must fight the most important battle of his
life, to reclaim his life and his daughter. Along the way, he discovers that
everything is not as it seems, and he learns ugly truths about those he loves the
most, as well as the true meaning of heroism.
