About the Show
Douglas Dire's world is one of isolation. Once a decorated Iraq
War veteran, he now roams the streets haunted by the memory of friends lost in
combat. With a fleeting grip on reality, a dark past full of unresolved pain,
and a hopeless future, Douglas stumbles upon a ring in an empty parking lot that
forces him to confront a secret he didn't know he was keeping.
