Somehow he has become the symbolic leader of a group of freedom fighters called The Resistance. The group recognizes no authority, but their General's. Little do they know, this man is quickly developing a dependency on pain killers and his mind is crumbling under the weight of his burden. Will he be able to pull it together and help his resistance turn the tide of this new war, or will he end up being a junky with a target on his back?
