ABSTRACT
Remake of Brothers (2004). Tommy Cahill, brother to Marine and happily-married father Sam, is the black sheep of his family, recently released from a spell in prison for an attempted bank robbery. When Sam goes missing overseas after his aircraft is shot down during a military operation, Tommy elects to straighten up and fly right, powering through his demons to offer crucial comfort to his grieving family; problems mount when an alive Sam returns home following a successful prisoner-of-war rescue effort, unable to adjust to civilian life and increasingly jealous of his brother's connection to his beloved wife and child.
