Beginning as a seemingly idiosyncratic story about troop greeters, a group of senior citizens who gather daily at a small airport to thank American soldiers departing and returning from Iraq, the film quickly turns into a moving, unsettling, and compassionate story about aging, loneliness, war, and mortality. Included are stories of heartbreak and redemption that remind viewers how this culture casts out elders, and too often soldiers. Includes commentary, featurettes, bonus scenes, and more.
