Alone at home, Sally begins volunteering at a local veterans’ hospital, where she meets and falls in love with a man, Luke Martin (Jon Voight), who suffered a paralyzing combat injury in the very war in which her husband is fighting. However, she remains loyal to her husband, and both she and Luke know that their relationship will have to end when the husband returns home. Bob does return, also suffering from PTSD from what he has seen in combat.
