Sgt. Travis Cooper is a hot mess. He's a seething cocktail of PTSD, depression, and anger, with a side-helping of borderline alcoholism. The giant holes in his memory don't help either. When his partner, Kyle, walks out after ten years together, and takes his beloved dog, Travis hits rock bottom.
There's no kind of future if he can't face up to his past. Somehow Travis has to learn to breathe again.
