In Afghanistan, Mitch saved Sean's life, but lost his own. Back home and out of the Marines for good, Sean's haunted by nightmares and guilt. He's also haunted by Mitch, who is with him everywhere, talking to him, cursing, and criticizing, following his every move. In the run-down streets of his childhood, Sean takes a job moving second-hand furniture with other misfits. When a former schoolmate employs him to clear her late father's house at Cauldhill Farm, he begins to uncover uncomfortable truths. As Sean confronts the hostile spirits of his past he begins slowly to deal with them: his alcoholic mother, his absent father, his (almost) girlfriend Paula, his own fatal mistakes in Afghanistan... and of course, Mitch.
