War can leave deep scars, and Veteran's shelter manager CHRIS TAYLOR, 58, is no stranger to the flaws of conflict, being a Vietnam veteran himself. Chris holds a tragic lesson in the heart after he married a Vietnamese girl in 1973, but was unable to get her out after the fall of Saigon. In time his heart would find comfort in the peaceful unknown that shelters him from the brutal honesty hidden deep within his fragile heart.

Chris is tasked to host a Christmas celebration at the Veteran's shelter for SALVATION. Christmas draws close and homeless Vets slowly wander in from the cold and contend with the reality of post-war trauma that takes its toll on them during the lonely holidays.
