2023. There is a war going on in Europe with the UK involved as well. The army is starting to lose key positions and people and the government start to conscript young men and women. David, 19, has just been conscripted when we find him in his room. He is an anti-war activist online while his father, John, is a war veteran from Afghanistan war and their main conflict comes from there - David doesn't want to go to war while John heavily pushes him to.

John himself can't go because he was injured in Afghanistan and David feels that his father wants to live the war again through him, while that is not the case - John just thinks it's a young man's duty to defend their country and people. There is also Vi - David's 17-year old girlfriend, who wanted to go the war, but wasn't allowed as is still not 18 years old. She applies additional pressure on David who starts to contemplate, having conversations with his father about why he joined the army. In the end, John and David find peace, John is perfectly fine with David not going to war, but he still decides to fulfil his duty.

The two of them have a strange relationship, as they both love each other but can't find a common ground due to their views.
