Sean is entering his senior year of high school after being dumped by the most beautiful girl he's ever cared about. But Hallie is moving on, going to college, and Sean still has a stagnant year before deciding what to do with his life. Sean considers only one thing to get him beyond his small town: the Marines. He decides to keep his head down, get through the school year, and join up when he graduates. He doesn't count on caring for his weird coworker Neecie, who shows him a world beyond hot girls and beer and deer-hunting and the thrift store where they work. She gives him the motivation to actually join up and make something out of his life.
