Two families, one American, one Iraqi, must deal with the horrors of war. Their lives converge along similar paths towards ultimate destruction. Who is to blame for their suffering: their choices or their circumstances?

True Blue follows Will, an American, as he fights in Iraq and is eventually captured by the father of the Iraqi family. Meanwhile at home in America, Susan, Will’s sister, is having problems adjusting to her brother’s absence. The two stories are seen simultaneously and converge in a tragic ending.
