Noah Cass was a machine gunner for the Marine corp during the 2005 Operation Spear in Iraq. During an over-watch mission his team was ambushed and a mortar round hit his truck, killing four soldiers in his team, and leaving him with permanent hearing loss and tinnitus.
When Noah returned home he dealt with issues common to veterans transitioning into civilian life: aggressive behavior, alcohol, addiction, depression, difficulty keeping a job, and relationship problems. Noah eventual hit rock bottom after 3 years and was desperate for a change. After losing more friends to suicide than in war, he decided to become sober and start running in his local woods.
Noah, now a father and husband, enters the 50-mile wilderness race with only completing one 26-mile marathon prior. This race represents the journey a young soldier has to face to help cope with a past that haunts him every day. TRAILER
