Plot

American Son (film) wwwgstaticcomtvthumbdvdboxart176803p176803

A 19-year-old who has enlisted to go to Iraq falls in love with a girl, but is afraid that he might not come back alive.

Young marine Mike (Nick Cannon) is shipping out for uncertain fortunes in Iraq, and has 4 days left to visit back home in Bakersfield California. The story is about his parting relationships with his best friend Jake (Matt O'Leary), a new girlfriend Christina (Melonie Diaz), his mother Donna (April Grace), and father Eddie (Chi McBride) over these 96 hours. None of these people initially knows he's shipping out, and each of the Significant Other's reactions to this news, one-on-one with Mike, make up the bulk of the story. The story also gives some insight into the how/why reasons Mike ever even enlisted as a Marine rifleman in the first place.
