Christian Bale portrays Jim Davis, a former Army Ranger traumatized by his time spent in combat.  He's hoping to settle down and marry, but first needs to secure American citizenship for his Mexican fiancĂ©.

To do so Davis travels to Los Angeles, where he reconnects with his best friend Mike Alonzo (Freddy Rodriguez).  Together the duo reminisces over alcohol while participating in stickups -- much to the chagrin of Alonzo's wife, a young attorney.  A weekend of partying culminates in violence, prompting both men to rethink their paths in life.  Unfortunately for one of them that realization may have come too late.
