2013 – Frankie’s home from a tour of Afghanistan, he wants to hug his mum and drink with his mates, but his mistakes are catching up with him.

2026 – Nat’s been away for two years, running away from the war in England, lost and alone, but now he’s coming back to find his brother and assuage his guilt.
